This is the boxed retail version of the game. An auto-updater is available, but the update servers are no longer online.
The game runs after copying all data from the CD to the program directory. Graphics, keyboard controls and mouse, audio: OK.
What does not
Installation fails after the installer has copied some files. Manually copying all files from the CD to the program directory (and making them writable, so that the program can create config file) solved the problem.
What was not tested
Multiplayer game, Glide with Glide wrapper
