What works

-Complited the Demo (5-10mins of gameplay)
-sound, menu,options,and just about everyting.

What does not

-installer gives error when selection it to show readme file readme file is shown anyway.
-weird keyboard issue with the ~ key used for setting unit status bar on/off it bug Wine different way than Windows(happens also retail version 3.1) this issue is so small it's impossible to note it without compating behaviour to Windows.

-Some specific places TA changes the PCM volume settings and status (mute/unmute)

places are:

When starting game(when start menu apears) PCM volume is changed to 0 and after that it's muted.
When pressing SOUND button in oppitions PCM: 52 and unmuted.
When starting the in-game(after all loading screens) PCM: 52 unmuted.
then same time when game ended WINNING or DEFEAT PCM 0 and muted
When quitting the game whatever it from main menu or exit game from in game PCM 48 and unmuted.

-when PCM volume change happens it take 0-1,5 seconds to happen.
-so sounds works... you just can't hear it since PCM is 0 and muted.


What was not tested

-did not press link to go
-someting very small impossible to note without actually playing the Demo in Windows.

HowTo / Notes


Please see how-to for version "Total Annihilation + Core Contingency + Battle Tactics + 3.1 patch" at  , just ignore anything to do with multiplayer, core contingency installation and so on, and installation will be from the demo .exe , rather than from a cd.

Demo specific notes:

- I feel that the demo probably won't run playably unless you can set your screen resolution to 640x480.

      - Note that the full TA retail version, with the 3.1c patch installed, is I feel fully playable, doesn't have the mouse scrolling issue that the demo has.

      - essentially, unless you can set your screen resolution to 640x480, the demo will probably crash on startup, unless you use a virtual desktop.  If you create a virtual desktop, you may find that scrolling with the mouse is unworkably difficult, because you have to position the mouse pointer exactly over the edge of the window.
