What works

The installation and the game in itself work.

The faction editor has also been tested and works very well.

What does not

There is a problem with the sound : sometimes there are cracking noises when some sounds play, like the sound playing when activating an unit or using the UI. It is annoying at first but after 5-10 minutes we can completely forget that it is there.

Moreover, the game launches in a small window and, in-game, it is impossible to modify the game's resolution or to choose to play fullscreen.



Workarounds

Here is a workaround to play in fullscreen :

- open Alpha Centauri's folder,

- open Alpha Centauri.Ini

- below [Alpha Centauri], write DirectDraw=0

- save and close the file.

Now the game should launch in fulllscreen, however the UI will not scale and the cinematics will still play in a window.

What was not tested

Multiplayer, except hotseat mode.

Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU: AMD
  • Driver: proprietary
