What works

Installs & runs.


Everything seems to work (given graphical limitations - see below).

Tested - main, audio, video, ship flag menus; cut scenes; sailing; ship combat; sword fighting; visiting town.


What does not

1) Unless "Disable shaders" is selected in the video settings, the game becomes unplayable due to graphical issues on the sailing screen (and I couldn't get to other screens because of them)

2) It's quite stuttery in places, presumably due to poor frame rates.

3) I needed to disable NUMLOCK on my keypad before it would accept keypad input (different behaviour to windows, which works fine with the "normal" setting of NUMLOCK enabled)

Workarounds

1) Disable shaders in video settings

2) N/A

3) Disable NUMLOCK

What was not tested

More than 15 mins of gameplay

Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU: AMD
