What works

Running the configuration tool (seperate from game - like used in Beyond Good & Evil, Dark Messiah and other PoPs)
Intro movies (a.k.a 'flying company logo's)
Menu, including changing the keyboard controls
Enabling 'High Quality' graphics' with the quality slider; this does seem to give a better quality (or could be due to the High Quali­ty Textures)
Enabling 'High Quality textures' with the checkbox
Gameplay including combat sequences

What does not

­Skipping the cutscenes or dialogues
Talking to yourself (pressing T key when not facing Elika) *seems* not to work; however it does work when fighting monsters

The lightin­g (I assume that's what causes it) on the characters skin generates what look like speckles of dirt.

Sometimes the game seems to 'freeze' (especially with light effects) but after a couple of seconds it continues to run.


What was not tested

­'Special moves' (Hand of Ormadz, Breath of Ormadz etc)
P­laying through the entire game
