What works


The game installed perfectly, even though it's a multi-cd install. After Setup is run; you get access to the terminal again so you just have to eject/mount as the installer calls its.

The game ran with software rendering, it looked pretty awful on my 24" monitor though so I decided to install the OpenGL addon which significantly improves the game.

Every cut-scene I came across ran in full screen, missions ran as expected

What does not

Nothing I have come across


What was not tested

Didn't complete the game but did the first 5 missions for nostalgia, everything is how I remember it.

Additional Comments

OpenGL addon improves the games, but nothing was changed to make it work.

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 ?
