Selected Test Results

What works

- Playing the game (for at least the first 60 turns) - Picking different starting members - Saving/Loading

What does not

- Long periods of gameplay: the game crashes on a regular basis, so the autosave function is handy. - Creating/Editing maps: the game crashes pretty quickly - The sound is pretty sketchy (it pops before it plays the sound it intended to play) - The game runs a bit slow, but still bearable.


What was not tested

- Multiplayer (No one plays these well-crafted old games anymore)

Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

Has to be a "complete" install of the program. Otherwise, it will not work (the game will always prompt that the CD is not in the drive, so clicking "OK" only works for a complete install.) Turning down the sound in the menus doesn't hurt, since this game is heavily text-based.
