PoC XXL has some nice features, as multiple freights, independant destinations, and you can change speed and destination while the ship is on the way. More harbours, More ships and more freights (passenger are possible, something also in the real cargo shiping and we have passenger ships also), and tankers and of course more players (8). Now the network support is implemented for LAN Networks. And the stockmarket is available also.
LANGUAGES of the game (some are partially translated): German, English, Français, Dutch, Norsk, Swedish, Daenish, Italien, Español, Türkçe, Hrvatski, Faroese, Finnish, Polish. New is the support for User ADDON on ship, harbors and goods.
PoC XXL can call PoC Sim3d for harbours and events to play in 3D, you need a Platinum License for this feature.
Note that PoC XXL can be tested for 1 hour per game (remaining time will be recorded in saved game files) free of charge. Once the time limit is up the application must be restarted and a new game created. Existing games can be resumed after buying at least a Gold license key (10€) from the author. Test reports created without a valid license are valid, but please mention this fact in the “Not Tested” section of your report.
Also please add exact version tested to your report in the “Additional Comments” section.
Everything seems to work, but there are some glitches (see comments)
What does not
The date is wrong (left corner):
it starts with monday 1 January 1980, and it only changes to tuesday when february starts.
When augustus starts it shows: January, augustus 1980. On Windows XP this works.
The framerate in the 2D Simulation is 5 to 10 times slower (according to the FPS count) than in Windows XP (and the Windows XP is virtualised).
Sometimes the game renders unplayable (black screen), no idea why/when. Not yet encountered in Windows XP, but not played much in Windows XP.
What was not tested
Tested version 1.00.04.
