I downloaded the patch available through MEGA on page 2. Made Saboteur work for me with my Ryzen 1600. But since I got the patch my computer boots to BIOS and not to Windows and then have to exit and blah blah it gets me into Windows.
I'm pretty noob at the software side of computers - I just like playing the games hahahaha. I've deleted all trace of the patch file but I still can't boot directly to Windows. Anyone got a solution?
Sorry if it's a basic question, but I definitely appreciate any help anyone can offer. :)
The patch is not responsible for this issue you are having, something else is causing it.
You could probably check your motherboard manual or contact your motherboard's support for possible reasons that your PC can boot directly into BIOS menu without you triggering it.
Does it also reset your BIOS settings to default or is it just that it boots into BIOS?
Pretty shameful to just sell the thing, without mentioning anything about these sorts of problems.
Every time I launch it, my computer crashes. Windows 8.1. And clearly, from the discussion, I'm not the only one.
Shame on you, GoG. This isn't the first game with which this has happened.
It's been quite a few months now since GOG has put a clear warning in the game's store page.
Please note that at the moment The Saboteur is not compatible with CPUs that have more than four physical cores.
This thread is for the "more than 4 cores" issue. I hope that they will integrate the patch, so at least that issue goes away.
Clearly, from some other threads, people have also other issues with the game (probably like the crashes you mention), but those seem to be more isolated issues -- ie not everyone with Windows 8.1 has crashes, or with an old AMD GPU etc.
