What works

Installer works fine on my system. Plugin does appear in browser and websites do recognize it (after browser restart). Shockwave-based apps do seem to work, but may be unusable anyway (see elsewhere).

What does not

Graphics. Many elements on the screen are drawn incompletely if at all. Critical buttons or other controls often are not drawn until moused over. Large regions of the screen are either blank, monocolored, or filled in with whatever was in the window before the Shockwave app loaded.


What was not tested

Actual game play. Due to the graphic issues, it is difficult if not impossible to actually play whatever game is loaded.

Additional Comments

It looks like Shockwave is, for the most part, operating except for the display issues. When controls can be located (i.e. by mousing over them unseen), they do seem responsive. If the display issues can be resolved, I think it is otherwise working. But those display issues are so severe that they render it unusable.
