No problems with long game play.

What does not

Additional Comments

Game is playable, frame rate is excellent, sound works fine. What I find funny is that the game would get a garbage rating in Windows XP. In Windows XP, vehicles in the sim jump up and down from the sky, the players mech seems to fall through the terrain. Basically, the game is NOT playable on windows at all. Keep up the good work devs! This error message may have something to do with the pop up message boxes failing fixme:avifile:AVIFileExit (): stub!
