This is the first version of the game, and it has some bugs so I suggest to upgrade to the 1.2 version because there are a lot of gameplay improvements, even a new truck.
Quote from readme.txt :
*** For users of some graphics cards and chipsets, please note that you may be
required to switch to OpenGL instead of DirectX. If you cannot read the Main Menu
words properly, you must do this.
If you like to run the game in fullscreen mode I recomend running it trought DirectX because in OpengGL you might see your "taskbar" below the game or/and the title bar of the last active window before entering the game.
What does not
If you run the game trought OpenGL it gets annoying when you use fullscreen mode or whe you chage any setting from game menu the sound stops till the next run of the game.
What was not tested
Playing with joystick/steering wheel
I chose Platiunum because the game has the same problems on windows platform and I do not expect to be better in an "emulated" medium. Anyway if you do not see the text from the boxes situated on top of the trailers in loading doc, i suggest u to upgrate to the version 1.2 or run the game trough OpenGL.

Like in windows...
Double click on launcher.exe then install then next next dialogs.
Don't worry if the background of the installer is black... (it should display some game screenshots ..)
Then use a nocd patch. You can find one here: http://m0004.gamecopyworld.com/games/pc_hard_truck.shtml
