What works

Installer works. 1.0 to 1.2 patch works. Texure patch works.

Single player (campaign) works although the game will lock up occasionally. I played the entire campaign in Samurai mode. No Wyndrax save bug in wine like in some versions of Windows!

Game lockups required me to restart X-session if the game was in fullscreen mode. If in window mode, it would either crash completely or I could open an XTerm and kill the process.

I played multiplayer on someone elses server with other players for a good while: no issues seen and excellent response. Started a multiplayer server which seemed to work fine, but no other players on at the time.

OpenGL acceleration works in Window mode or in Fullscreen. Joystick works.

What does not

If alt-tabbing in fullscreen mode, alt-tabbing back to the game doens't seem to work right, but one can work around by alt-entering to the windowed mode and then alt-entering to the fullscreen mode again.

Weapon shinyness doesn't work for some reason.


What was not tested

It would have been good if I had some other players to test the hosting of a multiplayer session.

Additional Comments

I would call this a Silver not Gold, due to the tendencies to lock up in single-player.
