This is the boxed retail version of the game. An auto-updater is available, but the update servers are no longer online.
Everything that was tested
What does not
Slight visual bug on headlights. Does not seriously interfere with gameplay.
Game does not quit properly - need to use xkill to get rid of window. Again, does not interfere with gameplay.
What was not tested
No changes were required. Worked out of the box.
