Benchmark version that allow you to check if your PC configuration is strong enough to run and play the game in good condition.
When submitting a test result please list what hardware are you using.
Everything, except parallel rendering (I believe this is the name of the option (I have it in spanish), its the one under brightness) which I had to disable or the screen would be permanently be flickering, making it unusable.
The graphics render perfectly, including all the effects like tint and aquarela.
However, the framerate is horrible. Under the lowest possible configuration, my framerate is in average 7.72 fps, though my system satisfies much more than the minimun requirements for the game. This speed issue is what brings down this games rating.
What does not
Sound. However, by messing with the configuration, I got the sound working ONCE, then I changed the configuration and I could not do it again...However, it sounded nice!
Also, sometimes when I closed the game it gave an exception and showed an error window saying that the program had to be closed.
What was not tested
Perhaps some combination of configuration options might bring different issues, but I tried many and the only problems were the sound and the speed of the game.
When the benchmark is started, wine throws a lot of this output (and only this): err:d3d:state_colorwrite (WINED3DRS_COLORWRITEENABLE1/2/3,7,15,15) not yet implemented. Missing of cap D3DPMISCCAPS_INDEPENDENTWRITEMASKS wasn't honored? Wonder if it has anything to do with the speed issues?? Also, my benchmark rating was a miserable E... I think this benchmark is a perfect way to make the original complete game work great. It shows a lot of the game, and probably fixing the speed issue here will make the complete game work.
