What works

Installs.  Will warn that it doesn't work on Windows NT if Windows version is not Win9x but will still allow installation. Uses and includes DirectX 3.  Will attempt to install it unless disabled via a "Custom" installation.  It will still make the attempt if it thinks it's running on WinNT and give a warning if it fails.

What does not

Requires 8bpp display (256 colors).  Xephyr was used for this test.  Linux version of VLC was used to test Xephyr.  OpenGL and swrast failed to initialize on Xephyr but apparently this is a known limitation.  I don't believe the game uses 3D so it's not likely to be a problem.

Operation with VNC was also attempted but failed.  The game requires both 640x480 and 320x240 resolution while VNC server only supports a single resolution.

With Xephyr, game starts but shows only a black screen.  Audio is present.  After a few seconds, the introduction video is heard but only a green screen is shown (left-click to skip).  After the intro, a black screen is shown, presumably the menu.  Pressing "q" quits.

Videos use Cinepak (CVID) encoding.

Native version of iccvid.dll was tried but there was no improvement.  Also used winetricks to incrementally test native avifil32, DirectX 9 (dlls), devenum, quartz, wvmcore, windowscodecs, and vcrun6 to no avail.

Additional Comments

GSpot also indicates problems with the Cinepak codec when a game video is loaded with it. However, fixing the codec problem for GSpot doesn't not solve problems with the game.
