What works


What does not

The installer refuses to complete the installation with default parameters; it works if run in Windows 95 mode.
The game itself refuses to run unless started in 256 color mode (8-bit color depth).
If you can get past that, the game still won't run. Setting Windows version to Windows 95 doesn't help; neither does the third-party Windows XP patch.
The documentation setup program doesn't work, either.


What was not tested

The game itself, since it wouldn't run. Also, uninstallation.

Additional Comments

Xephyr got me past the 256 color mode problem on integrated graphics (Intel GMA 950). Xnest wouldn't allow using 8-bit color depth with this setup.
