This mod requires a high end rig. There is no light version of this mod meaning that if you have a low end rig you will have to put all setting on lowest and make your way up step by step.
Antialiasing, sun light, godrays and shadows are very RAM consuming. Turn them off first.

BUGS & OTHER NOTICES
If you experienced any bugs in "I Work Alone" you will most likely face the same ones here
but some tweaking has been done to kill the few bugs that were present in "I Work Alone" version 1.2.
If you experience a CTD (Crash To Desktop) with a Crash log saying:
"Not enough storage is available to process this command".
Then you will need to either turn off background music or turn your graphical settings down
as this crash is caused by the mod using too much of your system memory (RAM).
Maybe you will even have to do both to avoid the problem.
Please note that loading times way have increased drastically with the installation of this mod.
EDITING/MERGING MOD DATA
MISERY is not directly compatible with any other mod.
Your adding of another mod might overwrite basic gamedata files...
- but I might have scripted the mod to use alternative files in many cases
- which leaves you with an unwanted result of merging or even constant crashes or bugs.
Merging, altering and/or editing of this mod data is at own risk and will not be commented
or supported on the mod profile by me.
