Installation process was OK, using the win98 mode, asking for full installation and rejecting the DirectX installation. No crack nor file copy was needed ; the automounting of the cdrom was correctly detected by wine as a D: drive.
Introduction cinematic worked well, with very minor visual problems (speed was quite correct, but mostly some parts where black when another bright color was expected, so i guess the 8 bits->24bits color mapping was misbehaving on some colors).
During the game, the drawing is good, and the character behavior is quite smooth and reactive. Only the sound is sometimes experiencing buffer underruns, leading to strangely mixed or repetitive sounds ; but you can get rid of it by moving your character and triggering a new sound event.
What does not
Level loading from the cdrom seems quite slow, and the HD is quite stressed at the same time. Then when about 2-3 minutes are elapsed, the screen switch from black to the expected loading background with the progress bar going like crazy very quickly at the end. The introduction and end level cinematics, which are perhaps available on the HD with a full install, had not this problem.
When level 1 is finished, after the cinematic, it goes again into a long loading ; when loading finished, nothing appear, the game is freezed.
What was not tested
Partial install was not tested.
Using a Win2k mode triggers an error in a display box saying "Operation under Windows NT is not supported. Continue game ?", but it seems to work all the same as with win98 mode. More testing is needed, and other modes were not tested.
Level other than the first one were not tested because of a bug freezing the game (see report).
