Almost everything works :

  • solo games,
  • network games on :
  • 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.
