What works

I have tried the spanish and english version in my Win7 Professional SP1.

In both cases it has the following problems (that are solved in Wine!):

- The "Exit game" option in the main menu does not work, it does nothing. You have to kill the task to quit the game.

- The realtime cutscenes and the gameplay itself are shown with weird textures and colours changing all the time very rapidly.

What does not

  • Colours corrupted (or palette corruption) in realtime cutscenes (like the intro) and most important, on gameplay, but it is much better than in Win7 because colours don't change in the same scene incredibly fast, they keep at the same colour (although corrupted).

    Possibly colours are corrupted in Wine because of the wined3d_format_get_float_color_key error.
  • Link to the bug with log details and attached screenshots.
  • ZBuffer does not work at 32 bits (execute Videocfg.exe to configure this), only at 16 bits. But this also happens in Win7, although behaviours are different between Linux and Win7.
  • Link to the bug with log details.
  • Selecting the credits (option "Credits" in main menu) and when watching them, pressing Alt key make the game blocks.


What was not tested

I have not finished the game (it is uncomfortable to play with the colours changed or palette corruption)

ABOUT INSTALLATION ------------------------------ I have installed the game successfully (executing Install.exe) and it executes perfectly. Note that you need the library MFC42.DLL to run the installation, install it with winetricks (./winetricks mfc42).
