What works

creation of the character from beginning to end

What does not

starting the application directly from the installer does not work.

The alsa audio output does not work when using the launcher, while it works fine if running the creator binary directly (launcher application gains control of the alsa output, and does not release it in time for the spawned process to be able to open alsa).

There are some reported GLSL errors and the application feels a bit sluggish.

 

Workarounds

What was not tested

The application is slow but has not the flickering mentioned in other tests. Since speed is not critical for the character creator, the rating has been adjusted. (M.)
