Some current saved games in Nocturne may be "invalidated"
by this patch. You can load your saved game, but if Nocturne gives a
warning, you SHOULD NOT use that saved game. This will not
invalidate all saved games, but if you have a saved game from a part
of Nocturne that got patched, that saved game may no longer work.
Everyone needs to know this before downloading the patch.
Reasons to install this patch:
1. This version fixes problems with hardware mixing and SoundBlaster
2. It allows 2MB ATI 3D Expression cards to start Nocturne.
3. This version fixes various script anomalies that could prevent
Nocturne from operating correctly under unusual circumstances. An
example is little Tommy will start his dialog in the church even if
he has somehow gotten stuck on a pew.
4. The ambient sound for Act 1 will now play, but only if you have
done a complete install. 5. This patch version includes a fix that
allows Voodoo3 cards running the 1.03.00 drivers (or later) from
3Dfx to run at full speed with hardware acceleration.

you have installed a new Act.
