Selected Test Results

What works

CFW's main menu, sound (see below for details), video.

What does not

CFW cannot be played in full screen mode because the game gives a black screen, a workaround is to use a wine's virtual desktop and running the game in a window.

Indeo Codec is needed to play sound and can be downloaded from: http://www.moddb.com/mods/gametypes/downloads/conquest-frontier-wars-audio-codec

Mouse Input: It's impossible to play because units and platforms cannot be selected.

Workarounds

What was not tested

Installer: I have copied the installed CFW's directory into wine's C: drive 

Because mouse input doesn't work, it's impossible to test extended gameplay.

Hardware tested
