What works

Initializing, saving/loading, and basic gameplay work.

 Initially, sound effects were delayed (e.g. the firing sound for the first weapon came after the bullet had already disappeared), but setting the default sample rate to the maximum possible under WINE Config's Audio settings solved the problem.

What does not

Fade in / fade out effects do not work.


What was not tested

A full playthrough of the game.
