Selected Test Results

What works

Installation, running (with nocd patch)

What does not

Vanilla: Anything in the actual game; wine throws a Program Error window and proceeds no further in attempting to run the programme. With nocd patch: The game opens, but the graphics are broken in fullscreen. When running in emulated desktop, it works fine, but text is near-impossible to read and you cannot respond to dialog boxes, disallowing you from even starting a new game.


What was not tested

Anything past the initial splash and dialog box.

Additional Comments

At the end of installation there is an error about not being able to self-register some DLLs, but this is not a hindrance to the completion of the installation.
