What works

Game installs and runs. Runs slowly and with graphics set low but works. See extra comments on how I got it to run.

What does not

Sound does not work. In winecfg I had to disable all sound drivers, and set to emulation mode. May be a way to get this to work. Network play. Cut sceens and start up videos.


What was not tested

All sound settings. I only tested a few configurations and could not get the game to start up until I disabled sound. Did not play the game very much, not sure how stable it is durning game play or if everything works.

Additional Comments

Installed the demo normaly, all seemed to work. Copied gdiplus.dll and gdi32.dll into the game directory. Copied msvcm80.dll msvcp80.dll msvcr80.dll into the game directory. in winecfg set CNC3Demo.exe to winXP, and on the audio tab unchecked all sound and set to emulation.
