Original retail version of the game.
Installing the game with both discs' contents in one directory.
Applying the 126.96.36.199 patch and the unofficial 08.07.2008 patch.
Running the game in an 800x600 virtual desktop.
Sound with OSS.
What does not
Running the game fullscreen. (The screen turns into an 800x600 viewport of the native resolution, which scrolls along with mouse movements, while the game draws into the top left corner.)
3D acceleration. (Game doesn't start, run with -no3d)
Double buffering. (Sluggish mouse behaviour, run without -doublebuffer)
Sound with ALSA. (Game doesn't start, might be my setup's fault)
Experienced a crash when scrolling the ingame map too eagerly... save often.
What was not tested
Gameplay past arrival at Shrouded Hills.
