German index

On December 31, 1996, Hardline was put on the infamous German index by the BPjS. For more information about what this means and to see a list of games sharing the same fate, take a look here: BPjS/BPjM indexed games.


Hardline had severe problems with some SVGA chips. That's why they decided to bump a sticker "If you have a s3 card, you might be unable to play the game in high resolution" on the package, instead of writing a patch.
