- Probably everything not mentioned in "What does not work"
What does not
- The text people say doesn't appear above their head. It is only visible in the chat area.
- Opening the Options menu ingame crashes SRO which is rather bad.
- The cursor looks somewhat damaged.
What was not tested
Only tested my glaiver char so I only have a small subset of all the available skills.
I eventually got Silkroad to work partially. I'm running a CRUX box with 1024 MB RAM, 2.8 Ghz P4 and a GF FX5900 XT. The first attempt in running SRO failed because the installer kept on crashing. It seems like this was caused by not enough disk space as it magically worked when I made enough room for it. The next thing where unreadable fonts which I solved by copying the fonts from my WinXP installation although there supposedly is a package containg the needed fonts so you don't need a Windows installation. The thing with the cursor is weird as it looks like a full color image converted to 256 colors resulting in corrupted transparancy.

If you intend to submit a screenshot, please make sure that it does not have your character details by pressing F12 beforehand. Also make sure you are only taking a screenshot of the Silkroad window, and not the Desktop.
