Selected Test Results

What works

Game begins and loads successfully. Visually looks fine - on default hardware-mode graphics settings; the scenario selection screen runs smoothly

What does not

Gameplay is hideously slow and unresponsive; even things like navigating the menus are sluggish.


What was not tested

Gameplay itself - the game appeared to work, but it was too slow to make any real use of it

Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

Whilst technically playable, seems to be effectively useless. The original Tropico runs fine on the same installation, which may or may not be relevant.

Laggy scrolling
by Bogdan Marginean on Tuesday February 14th 2017, 7:34
In case you run into issues with the map scrolling being very laggy (especially when zoomed out), go to the graphics options in-game and switch to software mode. This is an issue I encountered on Windows too. The game runs 100% smooth afterwards.

There is some difference as far as the visual quality goes but you have to look really close to see it, I don't mind it at all.
