Installation, the game.
What does not
Cutscenes, copy protection. Some textures are missing from misc elements : weapons in the hud, guards, weapons, some other random stuff. The mouse pointer remains visible. Ingame gamma.
What was not tested
First the copy protection must be broken, and then no miracle, but still, it's rather playable in 400x300 resolution on my rig (AMD 2800+, 1 gig ram, Radeon 9600 w/ fglrx). There is hope for high-end computers...

you MUST install "iv5play.exe" from the game disc
if you want to view the cinematics then you will also need a native quartz.dll
