Resident Evil 2 was also praised for its graphics, which many critics said were a substantial improvement upon those of the first installment. Sanchez and Weigand said that the pre-rendered backgrounds were an impressive leap ahead of those in the original Resident Evil, due to their increased detail and interactivity. Next Generation said that the character models now stood out less from the backgrounds. Shawn Smith of Electronic Gaming Monthly found the rendered cutscenes far preferable to the live action ones of the original. Mac Donald praised the model animations for having reached "true realism", and commended the use of body language as a means of seamlessly communicating the condition of the protagonists' health. Allgame's Shawn Sackenheim awarded its graphics the highest possible score, as he found the backgrounds to be "rendered to perfection", the cutscenes "a work of art", and the animation "fluid and eerie". The audio was well received by critics. Weigand cited it as an "excellent accompaniment to the visuals". Sanchez went as far as to say that Resident Evil 2 "may have the best sound design yet for a console game". Next Generation said it had "the most precise and realistic sound effects ever heard in any game". Sackenheim described the music and sound effects as "spot on perfect" and the soundtrack "perfectly composed", and Mac Donald likened the use of audio to that of classic horror films.
if you are using the compatibility modes for resident evil 2 and the game screen is too small, just press F8 while in the game (i mean while playing, not while being in the menu screen) to change to the desired resolution thus to fullscreen, i also recommend setting your antialaising at its max in your video card settings...
Unfortunately, saving and loading under XP is the one problem that no one has figured out. People have been known to take the saved program from an XP system and put it on a 98 computer and it works perfectly.

As for GPUs you can use pretty much anything other than the latest and greatest. I have had great success using GTX 580s, 260s, 9800 GTXs, Radeon HD6870, 4870, 5850. They all work perfectly. We use lots of variety for our Classic LAN parties where we build random old machines out of spare parts and game for a couple days.
Where I am Core2s are like locust, they're everywhere. A quick search on Kijiji can find multiple cheap sources of simple Core2 combos that will run perfectly fine. Phenoms and their ilk are great, they're tough and reliable. Their boards... not so much. The older S939 was great for the Athlon 64 era but AM2 and AM2+ I always had huge issues. AM3 and AM3+ was kind of a middle ground, not great and not fantastic. Power delivery was always an issue for them, especially when you ran into the cheaper boards.
Again it all comes down to location, location, location. Some places you'll find a very heavy AMD presence, others Intel. Get the best you can find without spending more than you want. Both platforms will work great for Windows XP.
Without the two updates that the game automatically finds online this game has some graphical problems - buildings disappear, there are some large artifacts on screen, and sometimes it just bombs completely. With the two updates downloaded and installed up to version 1.4.1 with recommended graphics settings the game runs almost flawlessly (occasional building does not display), scrolling can be a little choppy when there's a lot going on though. I allocated two cores to this XP Pro VM, I suspect Stronghold 2 Deluxe should work just as well with one core (will try this next). Hint: use the arrow keys to quickly scroll around the game area. UPDATE: Works great on maximum graphic detail levels! I set the resolution to 1440x900 85Hz, there isn't a choice for the iMac's native 2560x1440. Works fine with just one CPU core allocated to the VM.
game launches, intro movies work, but all menu text is completely missing, some other interface text partially missing, the game itself may or may not function, but this will be an unknown until the menus become navigatable
Following up on someone else's earlier post ( ) I'd like to know if Supreme Commander will now run in VMWare Fusion 3. Yeah, yeah, I know that even if it does run, it'll be slow... but somehow it's just the principle of the thing and I want to know if (slowness aside) it could work.
In 1998, after the completion of Resident Evil 3, preliminary work on a PlayStation 2 installment of the Resident Evil series began under the direction of Hideki Kamiya, under the name "Team Little Devil". Early research and development work included a trip to Spain to examine various castles as a basis for the game's environments. However, in prototype status, it proved to be a radical departure from the established Resident Evil formula and the survival horror genre in general. Rather than abandon the project entirely, the premise was changed and it eventually became the first Devil May Cry.
Dante crosses over to the demon world and catches up with Arkham, and he and Vergil work together to bring down Arkham. Dante and Vergil fight yet again, and Dante is victorious. Returning to the human world, Dante meets Lady outside the tower where she coins the phrase "devil may cry" while trying to comfort Dante over the loss of his brother. They form a friendship and the beginnings of a partnership in demon-slaying, and he names his shop "Devil May Cry".
Devil May Cry begins with Dante being attacked in his office by Trish. He brushes off her assault and she claims that the demon emperor Mundus is planning a return. Dante explores Mallet Island, encountering a variety of powerful demons, including one named Nelo Angelo. Dante is defeated by Nelo Angelo in combat, but Nelo Angelo flees at the sight of Dante's half of the Perfect Amulet. Other encounters with Mundus's demon generals serve to indicate that Dante has become even more powerful than his father since his initial awakening. Nelo Angelo attacks twice more in later missions, and is eventually revealed to be Dante's twin brother, Vergil. Dante enters the underworld in pursuit of Mundus, where Trish sacrifices herself to save him. Dante uses the emotions triggered by Trish's actions to release the power of Sparda that Vergil sought in Devil May Cry 3. Dante and Mundus then battle on another plane of existence. Trish returns and lends Dante her power. Dante then defeats Mundus. Dante and Trish escape as the island collapses, and later work together in the renamed shop, "Devil Never Cry", although the name was reverted later.
Devil May Cry 2 begins with Dante entering a museum where an important item called the Medaglia is stored. There, also, Lucia invites Dante to the distant island of Vie de Marli. Lucia's mother, Matier, asks Dante to help fight Arius, a businessman who wields demonic power. Dante decides to help. Lucia confronts Arius, who reveals that she was his creation. Shortly afterwards, Lucia gives Dante the last of the Arcana before leaving. Dante then encounters Matier again and she asks Dante to take the Arcana to save Lucia. Lucia attacks Arius, though he captures her. Dante arrives and trades the Arcana for Lucia, then attacks Arius, who escapes. A large stream of energy strikes the Uroburos tower and a portal to the demon world is opened. Dante and Lucia argue over who will enter, but ultimately it is Dante who enters the portal to deal with Argosax. 2b1af7f3a8
