What works

Installer.  You are able to start games, but in order for the game to re-drawn when playing (the main menu and such work fine), you have to switch to another program (Alt + Tab) and back to the game.  Imagine doing this every time you order a unit to move, select a unit etc. :(

What does not

Multiplayer via network, modem and serial cable; it uses DirectPlay.


What was not tested

Internet play via Red Orb Zone and MPlayer, as these services ceased to exist several years ago.
