If the Windows Autoplay feature is enabled on your computer, the GUN Launch scre en will automatically appear when you insert the GUN DVD into your DVD-ROM drive . Simply click on Install and follow the on-screen instructions to continue the installation. If the Autoplay feature is disabled, you can begin the installation by doing the following: a) Go to the Start Menu and select Run. b) Type D:\AUTORUN.EXE (assuming D is your DVD-ROM drive letter) and press Enter. -ora) Double-click on My Computer b) Double-Click your DVD-ROM drive icon. c) Double-click on AUTORUN.EXE. Windows 98 may not be setup to AutoPlay DVDs. To check, perform eps: a. Open the Windows 98/ME Control Panel folder and double-click on. b. Click on the Device Manager tab. Click on the plus sign next ct your DVD-ROM and choose Properties. c. Click on the Settings tab. Insert a check mark in the box to Insert Notification and select OK. 3. DirectX Detection & Installation the following st on the System ic to DVD-ROM, sele the left of Auto

During the GUN setup, the install process will prompt you to install Microsoft D irectX on your computer. If you choose "Yes," the Microsoft DirectX setup progr am will install the appropriate files on your computer. DirectX 9.0c is a set of sound, video, input and network functions developed by Microsoft. DirectX 9.0c is necessary to run GUN.

If you already have other Windows 98/ME/2000/XP games on your computer, chances are you already have a version of DirectX installed. In this case, the Microsof t installer will detect and overwrite any previous versions with DirectX 9.0c. At that point, you will need to restart your computer for the changes to take ef fect. If, however, you already have DirectX 9.0c installed on your computer, th e Microsoft DirectX 9.0c installer will detect it and not overwrite any files. You will not need to restart your computer after installation in order to run GU N. If you choose not to install DirectX 9.0c when you install the game, you can man ually install it later. To do so, use the following instructions: 1. Place your GUN disk in the DVD-ROM drive. The Launch screen should appear. (See the AutoPlay section above if it does not appear.) 2. Click on the "Extras" button. 3. Click on "DirectX" and follow the installation process. When DirectX install ation finishes, you will need to restart your computer for the new drivers to wo rk. 4. Play Disc

After installing the game, you can run GUN at any time from the Start menu or by clicking Play on the DVD title screen. Please note that you must have the GUN Play Disc DVD in your DVD-ROM drive at all times in order to play the game.

VIDEO ISSUES 1. Monitors

- Please make sure your monitor supports the game resolution you are trying to p lay in. To check what resolutions your monitor supports, do the following: a) Open up My Computer b) Double-click on Control Panel c) Find the Display icon and open it d) Choose the Settings tab e) Locate the resolution pointer in the Desktop or Screen Area box and drag it t o the far right The resolution choice shown is the maximum resolution your monitor is capable of displaying. If you do not want to change to this resolution now, select cancel . Your Desktop Area should be set to the game resolution you are trying to play in or higher. NOTE: Please make sure your monitor type is properly specified to insure correc t reporting of available video resolutions. 2. In-game and Desktop resolutions

Do not choose an in-game resolution that is higher than your desktop resolution. You may only be able to see as much of the game as is viewable at your desktop resolution. (For example, if your desktop resolution is set to 800x600, and yo u choose an in-game resolution of 1024x768, the game screen may stretch beyond t he size of your monitor screen). This issue may be more prevalent in windowed m ode, which is not supported by Activision Customer Support. In most cases, GUN should choose the proper resolution for your system based on

your processor, system memory, and video card. Changing the game resolution may result in decreased performance or visual quality. 3. Graphical Corruption When Changing Video Settings

Changing the settings on your Video Options menu may sometimes result in tempora ry color corruption of the screen. These irregularities will disappear when you return to the game. 4. Windowed Mode

Windowed mode is not a supported feature of GUN. 5. Changing Brightness and Contrast

To alter your Brightness and Contrast, you must be in-game. In the shell, selec t Options and choose Adjust Gamma. Raising or lowering the Red, Green and Blue values will increase or decrease the game's brightness. On some video cards, changing the RGB levels all the way up or down may produce undesirable graphical results. If this happens, it is suggested that the "set d efault" option be used to reset these sliders back to their default settings. 6. Advanced Graphics

In the Graphics menu there is a selection to adjust Advanced Graphics. This opti on will be available on higher end video cards. Setting Advanced Graphics to Hig h or Medium will enable higher detailed textures. Enabling Advanced Graphics ma y reduce performance on some machines. 7. Switching Screen Resolutions

Switching to different monitor display resolutions can be done using the 'Screen Resolution' setting in the Graphics menu (located in the Main Menu or Pause Men u under the 'Options' selection.) By clicking the left and right arrows located on opposite sides of the current resolution setting, you can set the display res olution to a desired size that GUN PC will run in. Pressing the right arrow will increase the display size for this setting while pressing the left arrow will d ecrease the display size for this setting. Once the desired display size has bee n selected, exit the Graphics menu by pressing the ESC key or right click and re turn to the Options Menu. When returning to the Options menu, the monitor will r efresh and the screen resolution will be set to the display size that has been s elected. Please note that users with older video cards may experience a decline in the game's performance when setting the display size from it's default resolu tion to a higher resolution.

GENERAL ISSUES 1. Alt-Tab, Alt-Enter, Windows Key & Ctrl-Alt-Delete

Using Alt-Tab, Alt-Enter, the Windows Key or Ctrl-Alt-Delete to exit GUN and/or switch to another application is not recommended. While you may be able to Alt-T ab/Alt-Enter to exit GUN, and the game will remain running in the task bar, you may not be able to recover the game by Alt-Tabbing/Alt-Entering back to it. At t

his point, you may have to use the Windows Task Manager to close GUN. Hold down the Ctrl-Alt-Delete keys to bring up the Task Manager, then select GUN from the list of programs currently running and hit the End Task button. Alt-Tab, Alt-E nter, the Windows Key & Ctrl-Alt-Delete are not supported features of GUN. 2. Uninstall Problems in Windows XP

If you receive the following error while attempting to uninstall GUN: Internal Failure Error number: 0x80040707 You are attempting to uninstall on a Power User account when the game was instal led on an Administrator account. You ll have to uninstall GUN on the account you were logged into when you installed it. Log out of Windows and login to the Adm inistrator account on your system. Then you will be able to uninstall GUN norma lly. 3. Uninstalling with Antivirus Software Enabled

The uninstallation process may take more time if an antivirus software (like Nor ton Utilities or McAfee) is currently running, even if the antivirus software is running in the background. Although GUN will still uninstall correctly with th is software running, disabling any antivirus program will make this process run faster. 4. Windows(R) Sticky Keys

If you press the Shift key 5 times consecutively in Windows(R) 2000 or Windows(R ) XP the following message may appear: "By pressing the Shift key five times you have turned on the Sticky Keys feature . With this feature, you can lock down the Ctrl, Alt, or Shift keys." Click OK or Cancel to leave this feature on. To avoid this happening in the future, click the settings button on the window r eferenced above. When the accessibility options screen appears, click the Settin gs button in the Sticky Keys portion of the window. On the next window (should b e labeled "Settings For Sticky Keys"), uncheck in the box that says, Use shortcu t, then click on Apply, and close the windows.
