Installation of official game client
Launching the game
Registering your UserId and Password
Updating the game (from the Tethealla patch server)
Character creation (up to naming your character)
Character selection (when using a pre-existing character)
This test was run from a compiled 1.3.19 build directory.
What does not
You are unable to type a name which is the last step in the character creation process. The esc, return, and arrow keys do work at this point (and are used for navigating the character select/creation menus) The user was able to type prior to this (when entering their username and password).
Once you've selected a character the game crashes during the 'bursting' screen with the text 'Connecting..' in the bottom left corner.
What was not tested
Ship/lobby select (next screens) and finally in-game play.
It's necessary to start this game from it's installed directory. If started elsewhere the game will launch but selecting either 'Start Game' or 'Options' from the main menu will result in a 'Failed to start PSOBB/Option. Error code: 2' message. The game also crashes at the same point under VirtualBox with it's experimental 3D acceleration enabled.
