What works

Everything so far;

  • Installation from GOG version
  • Running game
  • In-game videos (big part of game)
  • Completing the game

 Oh - The OpenGL Patch works great as well. Just don't overwrite the prophecy.exe that comes with GOG version.

What does not

Well, I've not been able to get the DVD videos to play in-game. You can download them seperately, however they use AC3 sound which isn't in gstreamer from what I can tell. Took gstreamer1.0-plugins-ugly:i386 to get rid of the video (mpeg-2) errors gone.

Back to usual videos for me.


What was not tested

Completing the game, I've been trying.

Nope, completed it. All good.

Radar in OpenGL mode
by Malcolm Mallardi on Wednesday May 14th 2008, 10:07
As a follow up to my latest test, since upgrading to Slackware 12.1 (and the ati drivers v6.8.0 with the new version of Xorg) the radar now works perfectly with the OpenGL renderer.
Anyone got it working ?
