Additional Comments

I chose full installation which requires 2 GB free space. The game crashes on startup unless you install Indeo video codec v5 (no longer free, you can download here http://flightcommander.solsector.net/indeo511.exe ), OR add a 'nomovie' line to Flt3.cfg to skip the intro. The default software renderer is ugly as hell but works without graphical issues. If only 3D hardware acceleration worked without glitches, it would deserve a better rating. Tested in a clean Wine environment, using a Nvidia 7xxx series card.
