What works

gameplay, audio and animation, menu options, save and restore.

What does not

Cutscene at the beginning seems to work but crashes in later cutscenes.


One must disable xaudio2_4.dll, then override with native x3daudio1_6.dll and xapofx1_3 to avoid crash for cutscene.

 With that, the game no longer crashes when cutscene starts to play, but it will usually get stuck with frozen cutscene or faded dark screen. The workaround is to skip frozen cutscene by pressing a key (Enter or Escape). You don't get to fully view the cutscene, but you get to play the game.

What was not tested

Didn't finish the game, but had enough progress to be confident that it's quite playable.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

If you want to view cutscenes, check youtube videos.
