Additional Comments

Everything works except by default, the mouse will only work on one quarter of the screen. Use MouseWarpOverride->force in the registry to get it working. If it weren't for this, I'd give it a platinum, even with the brightness problem below. The game's brightness level overrides your Desktop's brightness level. For me, it made everything brighter by default, you can turn the game's brightness down, but moving it down even one step made it darker than I wanted. I used the version, not any retail version. I think the only difference is the installer is the Gog installer rather than the normal one. I haven't tested the expansion, but I really see no reason to believe it wouldn't work the same.
