Additional Comments

I've test the game with playonlinux using 1.1.30 wine version. This is the complete CD version of the game, 1.0 necessary patched to 1.3 official and 1.3c unofficial patch. Patching operations are necessary because an error message occurs in not patched game, which indicates that the game couldn't detect the refresh rate of display. Same problems occurs for WinXP, the 1.3c patch is made for fix it.
