Additional Comments

I had alot of problems trying to install this game. I kept on getting the message about not being able to read Readme_EnglishUK.txt and the installer quit. The file in question appears to be on DVD 2. So I copied the 2 DVD's to one directory and then run the .msi from there. After that I was able to patch the game to 2.301. The game starts no problems. The tutorial however won't work for some reason. When using Skirmish or Campaign it does work. But the framerate is unbearable. A fixme:d3d9 message keeps coming back about. After using UseGLSL disabled I finally got some performance. Adding WINEDEBUG=-all made it a little better again. Also playing a bit with the OffScreenRenderingMode did not help much. Who knows, one day they might work as well as the Warhammer 40,000 series (also by THQ.. it boggles the mind).
