Additional Comments

I am unable to change many settings and any settings you do change are not kept next time the game is run. If you try to change the keyboard settings the game will crash causing you to have to restart. One work around for this is to use xmodmap to create a map of your keys to the ones already preset in the game. Also you need to increase the audio lag setting in the game to make it playable, I needed to set mine at 132ms to get it spot on. apart from all that, the game is very playable. Also make sure you install the virtual memory registry file and the native msxml3 library for the game to run.
