Selected Test Results

What works

Game is completely playable, no noticeable slowdown.

    * Loading/saving works

    * Cut-scene animations play fine.

    * Voice, music, and sound are smooth (though tabbing to a window may make the sound "skip")



    * 640 x 400 scaled is fine (windowed or fullscreen)

* 320 x 200 is fine windowed, but can be glitchy fullscreen (see below)

   * "smooth scaled sprites" appears to work fine

What does not

320 x 200 full-screen is a problem, as other testers noted. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Killing the process, in some conditions, leaves you with a miniscule 320x200 desktop. (Hint: Keep an open terminal window you can tab to, then "xrandr -s 1024x768")


The in-game mouse cursor flickers. (The mouse may seem unresponsive at times, but this happens on Windows too).


The opening splash animation for Infamous Adventures fails with "Video playing error: IDirectDrawMediaStream::GetFormat failed" (the console lists this as a stub method). However, this does not affect gameplay.


The process remains open after closing the window. A message "Device released with resources still bound" is displayed in the console, but it must still be manually killed. 


As mentioned, music may hang/cycle when tabbing to a different window, but this is minor.


What was not tested

All the various config options were not tried in combination.

The entire game was not played through till the end (will update if needed later.)

Additional Comments

Like the previous tester, I'm torn between silver & gold. However, the "flaws" in this game are comparatively minor and have no real affect on game-play. Also, the music/voice skipping issue reported earlier seems to be resolved. So: Gold.
