Installation; except that it complains at one point "Runtime Error: Active [Activex ??] component can't create object"
Settings, except changing the resolution
Gameplay: sounds and visuals, including water and shadow effects (there are still artifacts though)
Savegames, including previews
What does not
1. There is some kind of visual artefact, seems it has to do with light and/or shadows cast. Often on a flat surface, there is a light rectangle around the Prince and around that a larger, darker rectangle, which moves and sometimes gets smaller or bigger as the Prince moves towards a location.2. Before starting the game, Wine complains videocard does not support some features, even though it should (card=Geforce 8800GTS 640MB).
The warning Dialog Box says: "Your Videocard does not support some required features (D3DFMT_R5G6B5)
Some errors where detected in your hardware configuration. This may result in unexpected behaviours. Do you want to launch the game anyway?"
What was not tested
Playing until the end
Does not need any extra patches or dlls copied to the system32 directory, it runs straight from the CD.
