What works

Version: 10.9

The installer works and the game works (works best in 'winver' is set to 'XP'). Sound needs to be set to emulated as is a bit choppy. All the tutorials work just fine.

What does not

The some of the terrain fails to render when it is changed (especially if changed to water). Setting the blending to 'delayed' or 'none' within the game settings helps this a bit. Also, the 'destruct' tool does not render selections properly (selects large sections of the map at once).


What was not tested

Nothing that I know of, everything seemed to work.
