Additional Comments

To get the CD version I own working I needed to use dgVoodoo, I tested with 1.50b To get POD to install the 3Dfx version I followed some of the steps here http://www.thebasingers.com/0706milbs/pod/vista.html i.e. once you've created your wine directory put the glide.dll and glide2x.dll in windows/system32 You don't have to set the screen size to be 800x600, mine works in 1024x768. Then to get it running without complaining about the graphics not being 16bit or throwing 'grSstWinOpen Error' I used PodHacks http://svn.nicode.net/podhacks/bin/ the password for the zip file is 'PodHacks' without the quotes, the zip only contains the EXE. The intro video works with this too!

HowTo / Notes

Note:

The game only installs with the Windows version set to Win95.

It will NOT run in fullscreen mode.

The startup is blocked because it freezes, when playing the movies, the only thing you have to do is appending a new line in the windows/UbiSoft/ubi.ini:
PlayIntroAtStart=0

This game is fun! ;)
