Main Menu in a window, general flying around and combat in a window. Videos pause if the program loses focus (though I'm not sure if that was intentional).
What does not
Anything in fullscreen:
The Main Menu allows my desktop menus to be in front
The game starts minimized. If I un-minimize it, it shows 640x480 of the screen (using 1024x768 settings on a 1280x1024 screen) which does not show all of what I need to see.
When using Sidewinder missiles, "uncaging" (using the missile's seeker head to track targets) when using the Scroll Lock key (the default) will result in "recaging" about a second later. A workaround is to re-map this action to some other key that is not in use, such as backslash.
What was not tested
Full campaign, multiplayer games
Requires no-CD patch to play, but to show videos the CD is still required. Sidewinder uncaging must be remapped to a free key (such as backslash) to avoid recaging the missiles 1 second after uncaging them (see What does not work).
