What works

Campaign, Instant Action, Training, and Options all work as intended.

What does not

I was unable to regain keyboard and mouse focus after alt-tabbing. Videos also occasionally stutter, though this has not happened in a while; it correlated with my use of libstrangle, but I can't say for sure that capping framerate was the fix.


What was not tested


Hardware tested


  • GPU: Intel
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

Requires a 32bit prefix in Win95 or Win98 compatibility mode. 

Requires avifil32 through winetricks for videos; directplay, directshow, and l3codecx are also recommended.

Requires CD or a mounted ISO.

Libstrangle or other methods of limiting framerate may be required to prevent bouncing APCs or the inability to capture the barracks in the second campaign mission. 

Most popular mods work, but Freako's weapons mod does not. The weapons mod modifies the game's main DLL; if anyone has a workaround, I'd love to hear about it. I've also had no luck with high resolution patches.
