What works

Video, game play, sound, save and restore, everything after a manual bug patch of dx2.exe.

What does not

Without patching dx2.exe, it fails to start, complaining about DX2Main.exe not starting.


What was not tested

Didn't finish the game.

Didn't run in wine fullscreen mode (ran fullscreen inside wine virtual desktop.) and didn't try mouse grab (used mostly key to move around.)

Additional Comments

If it weren't for the simple manual bug patching of dx2.exe, the game wouldn't even start. But once it's patched, it works pretty well. So instead of Garbage, I'm giving Gold rating. To patch the file System/dx2.exe, open a hex editor like okteta, and change a single byte at offset +0x0ca5 from 0x45 to 0x44. Note that this patch may render it useless under normal Windows.
