Thanks again to Linda and Peter because their constant interest in this mission helped me to go on with my work.

Just only one word again:

IMPORTANT NOTE: I suggest you play this mission after a fresh boot. Both the complexity of the architecture and the high number of the objects require a lot of memory and powerful cpu (My pc is AMD 1500MHz, 512 RAM, ATI Radeon 8500 64MB).

Use Darkloader version 4.1 or higher.

A fresh boot is recommended before playing the mission.
