What works

Game installs.  The opening movie will play.  The menus and options function to start a game.  Sound and music work.

What does not

Game crashes after clicking on a base or moving a unit around.  I was actually able to move a unit for a few turns, but it crashed when I moved it to a datapod.


What was not tested

Could only test a few minutes of the game, since it crashes frequently.

Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

Game is not playable, crashes too frequently. I did not have any issues with the sound in this version of wine, though.
