Although right after installation, you have to click 'escape' a couple of times to get through some dialog boxes.
- The game!
Although it is a but troublesome to get it to work: t
the menu screen is not visible when you start the game from the Gameplay CD when it is in the CD-Rom drive. Instead launch qfg5.exe from a command line, wait until you get a dialog box which asks to insert the proper CD. After inserting it and pressing the OK button (press Enter/Return), the menu screen appears.
Once you get past the menu screen everything seems to work perfectly, including mini-games and loading and saving savegame files.
