Selected Test Results

What works

- Installation
- Starting the game
- Sound (with some problems; see below)
- Anything that has to do with the 3D-Engine > Graphic of the game with all effects + bloom
- Game runs with an smooth frame-rate over 50fps, only minor slowdowns
- Quicksave
- Bik-Movies (despite some image corruption)

What does not

- Copy protection
 -> used a nocd fixed exe file
- Changing resolution (restart of the game required to take effect)
- Mouse is escaping the window
 -> "MouseWarpOverride = force" fixes the escaping problem but locks the cursor in the center of the screen, which makes it impossible to use the inventory properly (e.g. dropping unneeded items)
 -> However, setting the ingame mouse sensitivity to 50 without "MouseWarpOverride", gives one the ability to turn about 900° which makes it pretty much playable
- several sounds are missing (e.g. sounds during picking up objects, some sounds of the surroundings)
- Quickload (the game freezes)
 -> Any game loading must be done from the loading menu 


What was not tested

- Anything beyond the first hour of gameplay

Hardware tested
