What works

Splash screen works too well. Whoever decided that splash screens that refuse to move and stay on top was a moron.

Introductory elements appear to work fine. Actions all work fine, unlike what Jercos said, although it's not always visible. (See "What doesn't work.") Make sure you've set your Windows version to Windows 95, though.

This is all with Compiz, btw.

What does not

Installation refuses to run with the error message if you have Wine set to "Windows XP":

Widget Workshop Setup detected that your operating system is not capable of running Widget Workshop. Click OK to quit Widget Workshop Setup.

Set the Windows version to Windows 95 and all is well.

Broken widgets:

  • Color Mixer ("err:x11drv:X11DRV_CreateBitmap Trying to make bitmap with planes=1, bpp=8" on stdout)
Just one widget? (I'm somewhat surprised, too.) I suspect that even that's fixable.


What was not tested

Not all modes of every widget was tested. Not all puzzles were solved.

Hardware tested

Additional Comments

If there's a bug, or if my system is off, this is candidate for a Gold rating.
