Anno 1701, v1.04 and includes the Sunken Dragon addon, v2.03.
- basically everything, out of the box
- all the singleplayer stuff, that means the tutorials, the scenarios, the campaign, skirmish, save/load game, all game features
- the map editor
- main game and addon can be run independently of each other and both run fine and stable
What does not
- there exist slight problems with certain graphics settings
- water refraction causes everything that should be refracted to be highly pixelated
- 16x anti-aliasing causes stripes in the gui (looks similar to those caused by a broken printer) but lower anti-aliasing runs fine
- on all anti-aliasing settings (except for "none"), the pictures in the Annopedia (the ingame encyclopedia) are missing
- there was a mobile game for phones as well when this game came out, in which the player could collect thalers and then afterwards transfer those thalers to the normal PC game, but if the button to transfer the thalers gets clicked now, the game freezes
