What works

I tested with a Topware Interactive release of Jagged Alliance 2 which came bundled with other classic games. While the DVD ships the game twice, in both English and German, I only tested the English installation. The game installs without further ado in a pristine Wine-doors setup. Patch version 1.07 applies flawlessly as well, and as a side effect also disables the copy protection check.

Once installed, the game works like a charm, at decent performance and in full screen mode. Even with Compiz left running, the game still works fairly well. No problems with the ALSA sound output either.

What does not

If Compiz is enabled during installation there is an annoying bug which causes the desktop background image of the installer to be layered above the actual installer window. Although it's still possible to complete the installation, it's easier to temporarily disable Compiz. Also, when running the actual game in full screen mode with Compiz enabled, the desktop corners are still active.


What was not tested

I haven't tested the German release of the game, beyond verifying that the installer runs. However, I expect it to work just as well.

Additional Comments

A well earned Platinum rating. I'm in the process of creating Wine-doors ApplicationPacks for both Jagged Alliance 2 classic and the v1.13 patches, which will make installing this still excellent game a piece of cake.
