Selected Test Results

What works

  • Single-player gameplay
  • saving and loading games
  • changing the resolution. All available resolutions works: 640x480, 800x600, 1024x768
  • patching game to 1.01
  • background sounds, voices, music
  • Battlez

What does not

  • mouse pointer may leave glitches on right side menu bar on higher resolutions


Fixing black screen glitch (occurs on higher resolutions):

DirectDraw renderer has to be switched to GDI by setting registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Wine/Direct3D/renderer to "gdi"

Fixing in-game music 

Run timidity in background process before running the game:

timidity -iA -Os -B2,8 &

that makes background music audible again.

echo -ne '\x90\x90' | dd bs=1 of=Gruntz.exe seek=126438 conv=notrunc
