What works

Everything works fine: installer, gameplay, movies, sound. I've completed campaign without any problems.

What does not

The game crashes if not run with -s9 paramater, which resets graphic setting to defaults (file "Launch RT3 In Normal Mode, Reset Defaullts.bat").


What was not tested

I think I didn't miss anything.

Additional Comments

Played on wine 1.1.19, but the game works on 1.1.36 too. The games works flawlessly out of the box, since bat file to launch with default setting is included into installation, and it takes just extra 3 seconds to change setting to maximum quality.
