Selected Test Results

What works

  • Installation.
  • Playing the game.
  • In-game movies.
  • Sound.
  • Music.

What does not

  • Blank/black screen.
  • Logo-movies play sluggishly, and slightly stutter.
  • There are flashing pieces in every scene.
  • When run in Wine's full-screen mode, the game window automatically minimizes when the workspace is changed. (Bug #37937).
  • It is not possible to change anti-aliasing. (Maybe bug #34625).


  • To get rid of the blank/black screen, requires `d3dx9_29.dll' to be dropped in the game directory.
  • To prevent the problem of auto-minimize, the game must be run in Wine's virtual-desktop mode.

What was not tested

  • Playing through the entire demo.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Intel
  • Driver: open source
