What works

Pretty much everything. Multiplayer LAN seemingly works 100% fine, although it was not stress-tested. 

Internet play is obsolete due to Microsoft getting rid of the servers in favor of the HD and DE versions of the game. 

The campaign has some issues if you're not using a No-CD patch, but this seems to be an issue on Windows as well, and with the patch it works swimmingly.

What does not

I cannot get music to play through the music.m3u file, no matter what I tried. But it doesn't really matter that I can't play Linkin park or whatever.

If you enable "Port forwarding support" in the settings, the game may become unstable, and multiplayer will not work.


Workarounds

Just manually port forward. Don't be lazy :P

What was not tested

Multiplayer (Through LAN) was not stress-tested, but was able to start, join and see games.

Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU: Intel
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

I recommend getting a No-CD patch to be able to play without the game bugging you to insert the CD.
