- training mode
- campaign mode
- mech customization
- mouse/keyboard controls
- rebinding keys
- videos, except the intro
What does not
- Game is not playable in full screen, only windowed
- Only certain resolutions seem to work. 800 x 600 and 1024 x 768 work; however, any others seem to cause the game to crash
- The intro video does not play on launching the game, although it can be played through the in-game menu
What was not tested
- Georg Hennig's WIne patch to allow fullscreen
Installed and ran the game following the instructions in the admin note. The process went smoothly, except for the issues mentioned above. I used the suggested options.ini and it worked fine. The game seems quite 'sensitive' to those settings though - if I change the resolution or increase LOD, the game will crash.
Otherwise, the game seems playable with those settings. I gave a Silver rating because the fullscreen and resolution issues are quite annoying and the Wine patch seems like quite an involved workaround.
