What works

– Installation

– Patching to version 1.0.1185a

– Single player -modes work even better than with NT-based Windows versions. No need to change compatibility mode to "Windows 95", no need to install unofficial "2000/XP compatibility patch" or no need to use a slowdown program.


What does not

– Online modes: TCP/IP crashes. I could not test Serial modes, because my testing system does not have serial ports. IPX says: "Protocol not installed (same as with my Windows XP installation)." So, I did not test IPX mode.

– Force Feedback works almost correctly. The effect itself works, but it is constant without any variation. When accessing pause menu, the effect remains on. (The latter is not a problem. The simulator is coded that way, and it also does so under Windows, too.)

Workarounds

What was not tested

– I did not test 3Dfx mode with a glide wrapper. DirectX mode works perfectly.
