Selected Test Results

What works

Installs.

Game plays with no problems using software rendering or Direct3D, and sound.

Mouse control works using the registry key setting as indicated in another test entry:

[HKCU\Software\Wine\AppDefaults\fs.exe\DirectInput]
MouseWarpOverride = force

 

What does not

The GNOME desktop panels still appear and obscure part of the screen. I worked around this by hiding the panels.

Workarounds

What was not tested

Joystick not tested. Multiplayer not tested, but I don't expect this to work given comments from other testers.

Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

Installer requires that Wine be in Windows 2000 mode (not sure if this requirement applies to the game).
