What works

- Installer

- Playing the game

- Character Editor

- Everything except a few minor glitches mentioned below.

What does not

- Sound: sometimes it gets stuck on a particular sound and it loops over and over. It repeats sounds (like the sound when you click on a button) fairly often, but sometimes it gets stuck on a particular sound and sounds like the start of a bad techno song. Whenever it does this, all you need to do to stop it is cause the game to make a new sound, which means clicking just about anywhere. While this is annoying, it doesn't happen often enough to make the game unplayable.

- The mouse get stuck in an invisible box and can't go all the way to the edge of the screen. When it does this, just touch the mouse to the opposite screen edge and then you should be able to move the mouse normally again. Again, this is annoying, but doesn't prevent you from playing the game since it's easily fixed.


What was not tested

Playing the game all the way through to the end. I just got past the series of rapids and entered the frontier area. ^.^

Additional Comments

If it wern't for those two very minor glitches, this game would get a platinum rating. Same results when winecfg windows version is set to win98 or win2000 - other versions not tested.
