What does not
What was not tested
Install and patch to 1.006 went flawlessly. Installing IPX support for openSuSE, ncpfs, is not needed, since the IPX-UDP patch makes LAN multiplayer use TCP/IP instead of IPX. Also adding the registry entries listed in the HOWTO certainly improved game speed. Only dll override used was for wsock32.dll.

-- UPDATE --
If the game does not run correctly after these changes, remove them.
Add the following lines to ra2.ini: [Video] VideoBackBuffer=no If the game does not run correctly after these changes,remove them.
Network PlayIPX is tricky, and is fortunately no longer needed. Someone has written a patch to use TCP/IP instead.
