Selected Test Results

What works

- installing the game (I had to install vcrun2005 and directx9)

- starting the game

- options, server browser

- joining a server

- choosing a team (the readyroom is mostly transparent but you can see the 'alien' and 'human' writing...just run towards them)

- I could not find any other issues regarding transparent objects or 'holes' in the world. Everything is fine. Except that I don't get more than ~20 FPS with a Radeon HD5870 which is pretty awful. Even the commander view worked without any problems.

What does not

- the explore mode thing in the tutorial menu doesn't seem to work (doesn't continue at 'attempting connection', just uses 100% of one processor core)


What was not tested

- VOIP communication and 'real' gameplay (just connected to an empty server, at one point someone showed up so I was able to test the commander view)

Additional Comments

I installed vcrun2005 (before that I didn't even get a black screen), and after that got me one small step further, I installed directx9 via winetricks. After that I didn't had to do any other steps (the setting for the mouse, as suggested by another comment, was not neccessary)
