What works

Installation went fine with GOG's installer
Creating and customizing an avatar
Setting up the game using max details, incl. FSAA and anisotropy
Running the game in virtual desktop mode (1024x768)
Sound and music
Voices (most of the time)
Using keyboard to control the character
Rendering, visuals are ok

What does not

Running in fullscreen mode
The greetings text is hardly readable in the launcher, had to install tahoma fonts
Mouse pointer has a weird shape (its a big white rectangle)
The first character you encounter (Zandi) has no voice, his radio is also silent
Turning with the mouse is difficult (especially in third-person view) as the mouse tends to leave the screen

Taking photos with the KI device resulted the game began to crawl to an unplayable level, ONLY when:

  • ORM is fbo (backbuffer is ok) and
  • FSAA is turned on


What was not tested

Completing the game (I've played only 2 Ages so far)

Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

No native dlls were needed. Anti-aliasing can be turned on when Multisampling is enabled in wine registry. After a period of gameplay the loading times became noticeably longer. I had problems running the game in fullscreen mode: the game is running, but in the background, and can't switch to it.

HowTo / Notes

Putting the mouse sensitivity to a max and the mouse speed in your desktop as slow as possible will make the game very playable
Since wine version 1.1.36 the game no longer runs in fullscreen but you can simply workaround this issue by disabling one of the following options (or both if bug still present) at the graphics tab in winecfg:
1. let the window manager decode the window
2. let the window manager control the window

after disabling one of these the game runs like a charm again :)

Side note. If you have a very dark screen you can fix this by setting the gamma to around 1.6 with your videodriver utility. To do this you have to start the game first and then apply the temporary changes to the gamma. The ingame slider does not change the gamma but the brightness making the game look way too bright. Offcourse version 1.1.36 does not allow you to minimize the screen so to get around this. Start the app once then exit. Start your driver manager and put gamma to your liking, confirm then change the setting and quickly start uru. After 12 seconds the driver manager will change the gamma correctly :)
