Installs, game menu works (must disable movie as stated below.)
Game itself plays (but not visible).
The included bonus classic trilogy works perfectly with xkegs emulator.
What does not
Movie does not play and the game hangs, so need to disable movies (see below.)
The game screen has only mini-map, health, and a small circle visible, including some occasional small moving objects, so is not playable.
What was not tested
Actually playing through the game.
Saving and loading (haven't reached a save point in the game.)
To workaround the movie playing hang, rename the directory Res/Movie to something else. It will then skip the movies and go to the main menu. There are mentions elsewhere about installing wmp9, but I haven't tried it. To run the classic trilogy, choose the classic from the main menu, copy over the extracted floppy images, and edit the config file to point to the floppy images and the included rom image. More details in gog.com forum.
