What works

Cutscenes, fighting enemy ships, attacking enemy towns, fencing (ship, castle, tavern), visiting the governor, dancing, visiting the tavern, trading (ships and goods), searching for treasures, searching for relatives, sound, music

What does not

Intro, ships and characters are a little bit "blocky". Turning shader on/off won't help to fix that. Sometimes (especially when fencing) the game hangs (minor problem). The game still seems to be slower than it is in Windows. Sometimes the numpad controls don't work. Very seldom: the game crashes to desktop.

Additional Comments

I played up to 80 pirate points without encountering REAL problems so perhpaps the "bronze" rating is a little bit too hard, I think "silver" is okay, too.
