What was not tested
playing the game
This is an umodified version of wine. I get a black screen, on start up and only get sound. I can move the mouse. I can hear the interactive menu in the background, but cannot see it. I am running a Intel GMA x3100. Spore claims my graphic card is using outdated drivers. I don't know if this is a intel driver issue, or a wine issue. This appears to be bug 15380. Since Intel GMA x3100 is a supported card of spore, i am going to have to give it a garbage rating.
