CD version for Windows PC
This is a later version that includes DirectX support (CrocD3D.EXE) and a demo of Croc 2.
What does not
What was not tested
I tested the game on two NVIDIA graphic cards (in both cases FPS is very good): GeForce 4 dgVoodoo Glide wrapper doesn't work here. There are severe graphic corruptions. Zeckensack's Glide wrapper has graphical corruptions which are black square background under text or cristals. D3D Hardware acceleration works the best. The game starts with opensource graphic drivers from Ubuntu 10.04 GeForce 9 Everything works here. To make D3D Hardware acceleration work I took Wine 1.1.43 and copied wined3d.dll.so and ddraw.dll.so from Wine 1.1.2. For muting system's sound volume I wrote script which used amixer to keep volume level high. For Glide wrappers I used howtos from earlier test reports.

A two-byte patch seems to fix the problem with keyboard control options not being saved.
Use a hex editor like okteta to open croc.exe and change two bytes at offset 0x1B715 from 0x04,0x50 to 0x00,0x90.
