Additional Comments

Occasional crashes (one per 10 hours of gameplay or so) might occur, but seem to be due to memory leaks in the game itself. Game is likely more stable under wine than under windows vista. Performance issues can be expected with older hardware, especially soundcards without hardware mixer. Also, I would appreciate other reports concerning sound vs fps. Currently my feeling is that sound on both "hardware" and "software" is mixed by the game and the game suffers terrible fps drops when lots of sounds are played at the same time. This is dependent on hardware I suppose.
