What works

Installing via Steam.

What does not

The game almost launches, but then crashes to the desktop without an error.  This may be related to the game's intro video failing to play correctly, as the following line appears right before the crash in the terminal output:

"err:msvideo:ICLocate Required media codec 'vidc IV50' not found!"

However, there is no simple way to bypass the intro video in the Steam version.


What was not tested

Playing the game.

  2. Rename win32.dll to,
  3. Copy win32.win7.dll to win32.dll.

The howto says to copy win32.win7.dll to win32.dll place, but fails to mention where to get said win32.win7.dll...
