What works

The game plays, the videos show and briefings work.

What does not

Not tested under Windows - the menu and mouse were too slow to be usable when HW acceleration was enabled.

Workarounds

This uses the csfix patch to get it to work on modern systems.

I had to tinker with the settings in csfix.ini to get it to work with hardware accceleration:

OverrideRes=1
ScreenWidth=1920
ScreenHeight=1080

SingleCoreMode=0

The "SingleCoreMode" seems to be the critical setting, without it the game menu and mouse are too slow to use. The OverrideRes just gives it a nice bigger resolution.

What was not tested

Multiplayer.

Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU: AMD
  • Driver: open source
