What works

All gameplay seems to work. Quite stably, too. Works in fullscreen (as opposed to in a virtual desktop).

Saves work

Changing what button does different controls works.

In-game videos such as when Gogoud talks to you and when you walk to a new area.

Everything after clicking "load game/ new game" that I have seen works, except for the story background info video played before a new game and after you click "new game", though it does play the audio. It gets stuck on the seagull loading screen at this point. But even firing your lay..I mean magic works.

What does not

Does not show pre-"game start menu" videos. Should show the Ubisoft logo rotating, and then show the playmobile characters in the game walking to a very large floating PlayMobile logo levitating over green grass. The screen is white during this, though plays the audio for it.

Does not show the background story video before the game (not the same as the pre-"game start menu" video). But once the text appears over Hype as a statute on Gogoud's lawn, that video is shown. All such "in-game" videos are shown.

DirectX Media software test does not work in installer. It must be unchecked, or else the installer will crash.

 Do not recall the splash screen window saying "Ubisoft...for Windows 95, etc." ever poping up before the installer window (where you click "Install") - the installer window just pops up instantly. It doesn't need a waiting popup. That's probably actually a good "does not work". Also, no "please wait for installer to finish" popups, again, so fast that it didn't need them.


What was not tested

Did not play through whole game, though pretty well proved its stability.

Did not have a gamepad, so anything involving a gamepad was not tested.

Only tested the "full installation".

Did not test installing to a non-default directory.

Did not test opening the readme from the installer.

Additional Comments

For the finer details of Hype and Wine, go to my first Hype test result: . Everything that was true then is true now, except that the keyboard now works because I did the native dinput override this time, and didn't last time (didn't know about it then), although the error below may happen more frequently now, but it is not a big deal: if it comes up, just try again. May on occasion error with this: , but if you try again it will run. In winecfg, set to NT 4.0 mode (applications tab), do the dinput (native) dll override (libraries tab), and, of course, add the path to where the CD is mounted under the drives tab. When you install, you must uncheck the "Microsoft DirectX Media" software test. Again, more details in my first Hype test result. In the comments when I say I'm referring to errors, I'm referring to the errors I was referring to in my first Hype test result. It seems like Hype is an indicator of Wine progress as various parts work. First the installer no longer went over 100% if you didn't uncheck the software test (but still fails), then it could fill out the system info thing, then it could actually play the game, then it could play the game without the dinput patch, and hopefully, extrapolating into the future, then be able to play without the native dll override, and finally, able to do the Microsoft DirectX Media software test. Game does not work in Windows7 64-bit. I doubt it would in any Windows 64-bit, even though Windows 64-bit is supposed to be able to run 32-bit programs because it has WOW64 (Windows 32-bit on Windows 64-bit). Even in WinXP 32-bit, it sometimes would run it, and sometimes wouldn't. I installed it, it ran (only after logging out and back in, at least one of the times that was the case), then on restart it didn't. Had to restart again for it to work in WinXP 32-bit. DOS4Dinner said that in Win98 when you shot magic, it didn't go over well. But in Wine, it all goes over great! Just another example of Wine eclipsing Windows. Hype has been immortalized : )!
