What works

Under Windows 2000 compatibility:

  • menu system,
  • server connection
  • in-game graphics
Under Windows XP compatibility
  • the menu system seems to render correctly; can't proceed further due to the mouse issues described below.

What does not

Under Windows 2000 compatibility

  • When in-game, mouse seems stuck in a 'box', making in impossible to turn the character all the way around

Other than that, everything seems compatible under the WinXP compatibility settings.

----

Under Windows XP compatibility, the mouse is stuck in a small bounding box in the center of the screen in the game menu system, making it impossible to use the menu system to enter the game world, or to exit the game. A reboot of X is normally required.

 

Both XP and 200 behavior are detailed in Bug 8291

Workarounds

What was not tested

I've played the game extensively under earlier versions of WINE when there was a workaround for the mouse bug; at that time, everything worked perfectly, apart from an occasional inexplicable crash.

Additional Comments

I rated this bronze as the game is not playable with these mouse. However, the only thing standing between this and and full gold or platinum rating is the mouse issues - I played the game for a several week trial period under Wine 0.9.45 or so. At that time, the game played perfectly apart from the mouse issue; I could work around that since alt-tabbing between windows in the background would 'unstick' the mouse temporarily and allow me to access the menus. In-game play worked perfectly!
