Gameplay is smooth on my system running at a constant 60fps with no stuttering or game artifacts, it is a flawless experience.  All parts of the game work.  Resolution switching is also flawless, purchasing upgrades (weapons and armour) is also working.

The game was tested with my CPU (J-Series Celeron - a 6W mITX integrated CPU) so the performance is not bound to powerful hardware and therefore should perform well on better or same hardware.

What does not

Everything tested has worked perfectly, nothing has been found which does not work.


What was not tested

Final boss level and the completion of the game in it's entirety.

HowTo / Notes

For some wine versions it is needed to set Windows wersion to XP for this Alien Shooter version to start.
If you have problem with Alien Shooter drawing graphics and have Geforce/GeforceFX card you may try the sollution below (wine 0.9.19 or above only.)

Set the option HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct3D\DirectDrawRenderer to opengl (if the Direct3D key doesn't exist, add it). Further you need to set the option Direct3D\RenderTargetLockMode to readtex.

Above options set OpenGL for all applications. If any of your applications doesn't work with them, add application specific options instead of global ones (HKCU\Software\Wine\AppDefaults\name_of_the_exe_file.exe\Direct3D).
