What works

The strategic view had no glitches that I encountered. The combat view works, except for the overlay. The research view work, the menus all work. I didn't notice any glitches until I got to combat.

What does not

Fullscreen works, but I had some mouse pointer issues the first few times I launched the game. Windowed mode failed the first time I tried it, after trying a few different resolutions fullscreen. The next time it worked mostly ok, but the mouse wouldn't move past about 100 pixels from the right right side or bottom of the window. I think it was stopping the mouse from the top left corner of the screen, not the top left corner of the window. The overlay in the combat screen is complete gibberish. Somethings show up, somethings are just random textures and flickers. I'm not familiar enough with the game to play without the overlay, so this makes it pretty unplayable for me.


What was not tested

Probably a lot. I played about 8 turns until I got into combat and quit.
