The Longest Journey

This is a more recent version of TLJ, which runs under Windows XP and fixes several crash issues. The game still uses DirectX 7 interfaces, and DirectDraw.

There is a downloadable demo on the company website http://www.longestjourney.com/ that makes for a good testcase (exact same code as the game itself).

What works

Installation by running setup.exe directly from the disc, videos, audio and starting the game.

What does not

Autorun launcher on the CD won't load.  Characters don't display at all.  It looks like the shading (black triangles) is displayed, but nothing else.

When trying to exit the game via the menu at the top a grey box appears and the mouse cursor disappears making it impossible to exit by normal means. 

Workarounds

What was not tested

Gameplay beyond the opening area.

Additional Comments

The video is slow enough that it's completely out of sync with audio. This happens during FMVs and when attempting to walk from one end of the screen to the other. If you move far enough for the next area to be displayed it's as though the character "jumps" into the next area.
