Almost everything works :
- Linux/Linux computers,
- Linux/Windows XP computers (network game doesn't work on W7 and maybe above) with Linux as a client and WinXP as a server and vice versa.
What does not
Although sound works fine almost all of the time in solo games, it works almost never in network game.
What was not tested
The other things that were tested by others (map creation and so on).
