Additional Comments

TC ran much better on wine 0.50. With Wine 0.53 it runs unplayable slow. I used to play this game on it's highest settings in Windows.It's sluggish performance is a regression bug though since it was better before (wine 0.50).

HowTo / Notes


1. Install the game from the official disc.

2. Go to the website, download and apply Patch 3.

3. Go to the game folder, make a backup of the Movie-folder. Delete the Paradox.avi-file inside.

4. Game should now run under Windows XP-mode (not tested in other modes).

Note: The game runs sluggish, and I can't seem to get any sound (that may be me however)

Notice, using the Jack driver may crash the game after loading a level. This is to be confirmed on other systems.
