What works

installation, initial gameplay

What does not

blocking blug in the second mission (dagon order town):

game should probably transition to some sort of cinematic, but instead
the movement input is ignored and the visual slowly moves around through the town,
going through obstacles, and finally stopping in an alley, where nothing more happens,
and no movement input is accepted.

This happens after meeting the guy that wants to speak with the mining facilities' manager.


What was not tested

anything after the blocking bug.

HowTo / Notes

Vertical Synchronization

if you experience slowdown in moving speed of your character, try to disable VSync in your X drivers

if your picture is choppy some times, try to toggle it on.

(way to do so is different for all drivers)

The movement of the main character is axtremely slow in comparison with windows installation. Timed missions are unplayable. Tried to turn off vsync. No iprovement. Ubuntu linux 9.04, wine 1.1.25

Try disabling strict draw ordering. Worked like a charm for me.
