Good Old Games version
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.
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.
