What works

Configuration, starting a new game, gameplay and saving/loading all seem to work perfectly from what I've played so far, with no sign of any problems except the items listed as not working.

What does not

The company logo videos that are played on starting the game do not work.

This was unplayable on my system with Intel graphics - it crashes on startup unless a virtual desktop is enabled, and then camera movement with the mouse is limited (and setting "Automatically capture the mouse in full-screen windows" did not fix it as it does on the other systems when a virtual desktop is used. Setting MouseWarpOverride did nothing to help either).


Requires physx and native d3dx9_29

What was not tested

Additional Comments

This report is based on my notes and testing during the creation and maintenance of my wrapper for the GOG version of this game:

Prefix configuration:

  • CSMT was enabled
  • Wine Mono and Wine Gecko were not installed

If running the game with virtual desktop enabled, you must also set "Automatically capture the mouse in full-screen windows".

Tested systems:

  • AMD R7 1700 @ 3.7GHz, 16GB RAM, AMD RX 480 8GB (main system)
  • Intel i7-2600k @ 4.5GHz, 16GB RAM, Nvidia GTX 750 Ti
  • Intel i3-6100, 4GB RAM, Intel HD 530 graphics

All running Linux Mint 18.x with kernel 4.13.0-38 and stable Mesa from Padoka's PPA (for AMD/Intel graphics) or Nvidia's proprietary drivers
