Selected Test Results

What works

The Game for Single Mission, Instant Mission, Campaign missions.

Using D3d DirectX 3D setting (default)

Game, 2d and 3d graphics, sound, d3d, d2d menus

What does not

Single mission targets selection screen garbled, half-works. Same with the campaign briefing screen:

This is the classic 'ATI garbled briefing screen' anomaly, same as it occurs on Windows with some ATI or ther cards. It is caused by EAW itself, not a Linux issue so I have no fix for it.


No horizon fog. EAW issue encountered by some ATI or other graphics cards. Not a Linux issue. No fix planned.


Not solved: Getting the error from Wine EAW: 'keylist.str not found'

- if the error occurs before the game menu appears It will stop EAW from loading and ctd (crash to desktop).
- if it occurs after you are in the EAW game menu then it won't ctd, at least under Q4OS, but you'll see the error box after you exit the game back to Linux. Just close that.

Not solved yet but it may be related to joystick / keyboard settings.


What was not tested

Glide setting
