What works

- Installation - Launching & playing the game - sound with OSS and ALSA. Hardware acceleration should be set to "Emulation"

What does not

- Don't know if there is an intro cinematics. Launching the game displays a text screen. A mouse click brings a black screen so maybe there is one which does not work. Another click brings the startup screen (new game, loading, options etc). Ingame cinematics work fine. - Don't know if there are ingame musics. I didn't had any.


What was not tested

- saving and loading a game

Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

- As written before, sound hardware acceleration had to be set to "Emulation" to have sound. Some stuttering though. - The game had to be run in a virtual desktop else keyboard input would not work and changing resolution would be pretty difficult as the game constantly switches resolution while asking the user to confirm his choice. Else, the game runs very well and is fast.
