What works

Installing the game in a clean W32-prefix, 


main menu, 

music and sound (without 'xact' installed)

What does not

I don't use Windows, but I tested the game on 'Play on Linux' in a W32-prefix (v. 4.0.4): It installs perfectly and runs without any problems, nocd, 'xact' and option '-novideo' needed.

in wine 6.10 game crashes immediately after selecting 'Start new game' with an 'out of memory'-error.


What was not tested

  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary
