What works

Everything. Works just the way it is supposed to, with a minor configuration. 

What does not

Nothing I have come across in the program itself so far. The 'help' file (which is really a seperate program I think) has crashed on closing. This did not affect the way that Fritz 5.32 itself was running.


What was not tested

There are a few lesser features I still haven't tried.

Additional Comments

This is for the old free version of Fritz 5.32. It works just fine under wine - but.. It MUST be run with 'Emulate a virtual desktop' enabled - otherwise it is very difficult / buggy to change between the different windows of the game. With this enabled it works without problems. HOWEVER, certain resolutions chop off the control buttons at the bottom of the screen that are necessary for play - this is instance true of 1024x768 size that has been recommended elsewhere. DECREASING the size slightly will fix this. 1024x680 has been optimal for me. So check 'Emulate Virtual Desktop', and set size to 1024x600 and it should be just fine - at least has been on my computer.
