What works

I played about 2 levels. Everything works including graphics, sound, controls and cutscenes.

The installer installed necessary DirectX components, no winetricks were needed.

What does not


What was not tested

I haven't played through the game yet. Also, the patch contains a no-CD patch, so that part also wasn't tested.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

Turning on DXVK will crash the game after a few second, I recommend keeping it turned off.

Works fine with esync turned on.
