What works

game play control, sound, animation, save and load, cinematics.

What does not

The game crashes just before playing an introductory cutscene due to incomplete wine implementation of Cinepak codec.


To avoid crash, install and override with native iccvid.dll.

Also set MS Windows version to 95 or something below XP or NT to get rid of harmless warning.

What was not tested

No network play. Never played to the end.
