This is the Special Edition retail release, but not the Linux Special Edition. There is no copy protection, which is very nice to users.
The app is fully HD installable.ÂÂ
What does not
What was not tested
1024x768 appears to be the best resolution for this game. Otherwise some textures are zoomed and smeared. If you run in w2k mode, savegames are stored in the game's save subdirectory. In xp mode in (c:\users\...) %USERPROFILE%\Anwendungsdaten\Ankh\save\ instead.

ÂÂÂÂUse wine-0.9.31 .. 0.9.43 to play this game with the default Direct3D9 renderer because of several regressions. These old versions should work except the item icons in the inventory may not be drawn correctly (bug #21354).
The maintainer would appreciate if you would find out whether one of these old veÂrsions works better than the others.
You can use much more recent versions of Wine (such as 1.1.34/36) if you change bin/release/plugins.cfg to use the GL renderer instead. The speech output issue (bug #21209) may still affect your machine.Â
