What works

Installation under steam library.

Launch works, for some reason it launches minimized in the background without focus. It requires Windows 7 version, XP settings do not work.

Strategic gameplay seems to work, but was not thoroughly tested.

What does not

Tactical gameplay works, but often crashes when you switch soldiers. This makes the game unplayable. Most of times Steam gives the error that the game is currently unavailable (Application Running).

Fullscreen and borderless window modes do not show the set resolutions, resulting in part of the game being shown outside of the window. Maximizing/windowing with Alt+Enter fixes this.

Saving resolution does not work (possibly a chmod fix to this?)

Sound, I was not able to get sound to work. I cannot seem to detect an audio stream from the application. I was not really motivated to figure this out as the game isn't playable.


What was not tested

Extensive gameplay, there may be further issues.

Various DLL overrides.
