Selected Test Results

What works

Main menu, gameplay (mechanics, not rendering), voice, and audio.

What does not

Correct rendering of models and map geometry.

 All NPC and player character models are not rendered. A small portion of map geometry is not rendered.

There are artifacts everywhere during gameplay.

Aside from this, the game does not crash and runs "normally" (if you can call it that).



What was not tested

Coop campaign

Additional Comments

vcrun6sp6 & vcrun2010 winetricks installed. Game run using DX9 renderer. Tested under WinXP and Win7 mode. Wine version used was wine staging 1.9.5 32-bit. Rated bronze because the game _functions_ at ultra and other settings with decent framerate despite serious and persistent graphical defects.

What winetricks did you use? The report should not have been accepted without that.

How can it be gold if campaign mode does not work?
