What works

Almost everything: menus, engine, textures, input, sound (though choppy)...

What does not

In-game map loads (i.e. when loading the next part of the map). The "Loading..." message disappears, so I assume it finishes loading. Then it locks up, requiring a hardware reset.


What was not tested

The second part of Point Insertion and the entirety of We Don't Go To Ravenholm. The former because it can't load, the latter because I haven't tried it.

Additional Comments

This was actually tested on 0.9.34, but that option isn't present.
