A famous post-apocalyptic role-player game by Interplay.
Everything. Also tried it with the resolution patch and that works fine, too.
What does not
What was not tested
Played through it twice and completed most of the available missions in the process, so most everything was tested.
Does occasionally lock up during game start-up, but infrequently. When that happens, CTRL-ALT-FnX to a new terminal and kill the process and reset your res and you're back to normal. Once into the game it's flawless. I installed the largest option from CD, then applied the semi-official 1.2 patch and unofficial 1.35 patch as available and recommended on NMA, as well as the NPC patch that improves control of NPCs and lets them level to stay useful longer. N.b. installing these patches required modifying the case of some filenames. I will find a place to host a superpatch to bring the game to this level and provide a link here. The only special concession it needed to install or run was to specify Win98 in wine config. Admin note: rating changed to conform to the rating definitions.
