Q: I'm experiencing a strange behavior of the game after a quick-load/loading a new level.
Q: 2027 is full of bugs. Have you tested it at all?
A: Make sure you have Deus Ex version 1.112fm. Try installing 2027 on a clean Deus Ex with the latest patch that does not contain any mods. We have been testing 2027 for more than three months and there shouldn't be any major game bugs left.

Q: I get an error when I'm trying to launch the mod from a desktop shortcut.

A: Run the game, press Ctrl+Shift+Esc (if your game crashes, press Alt+Tab first), go to "Processes", right-click "2027.exe", select "Set Affinity..." and make sure that there is only one CPU selected. Alternatively, you can install this utility (make sure you are running it as an administrator) and then set \System\2027.exe to run in a single-core mode.
