What works

Installs great

Boots into game fine

All music and gameplay elements function excellently.

What does not

Sometimes the game will launch into a black screen. I just solved this by not checking the box that allows Geneforge to start in that resolution automatically upon launch. Just choose your resolution manually each time the game launches.

I also found that the direct x .exe works much better then the other .exe provided.


What was not tested


Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

Like I said sometimes the game will launch to black screen. Just restart x and it should be fine. You might have to toy around with different resolutions as well depending upon your computer and distro I suppose.
