What works

  • Medic training one, two, and three.
  • Several maps (list forthcoming, be patient there's LOTS).
  • Sound.

What does not

  • Quite a few maps.
  • Many textures in outdoor environments display incorrectly (too brightly). Problem disappears after going inside.
  • Some textures display as big, black blotches.
  • Decals show up as black squares.
  • Projected textures during, for example, medic training.
  • Probably a whole lot else.
  • I'll do a (quite risky to my continued ability to play AA) test involving PB and PBSS later.
  • The installer.

Additional Comments

I recommend you install it under Windows first, and then copy the install over. If anyone can host a pre-installed, not-run-yet copy somewhere (within the bounds of legality?) I'm sure that would help linux-exclusive users.
