What works

* The Game (mostly, see below)

What does not

* Additional fonts must be installed or almost nothing is displayed.

* Most text has additional junk characters inserted. line breaks are often not rendered correctly.

* Game behavior is jerky, even on a relativly high end machine. The game warns about DirectX not working.

* The game occasionally crashes.


What was not tested

* Saving the game. (loading does work, I did load from autosave)

Hardware tested

  • Driver:

Additional Comments

Some of the extra fonts must be installed before the game is usable. I'm trying to figure out the exact set of fonts that have to be added.

Performance slowdowns during battles
by Frédéric Delanoy on Saturday April 7th 2012, 14:32
If you experience slowdowns during battles between ships,
setting HKCU\Software\Wine\Direct3D\DirectDrawRenderer to "gdi" (using 'wine regedit') may help.
