What works

Installation and running is prefect.

To run is necessary add Direct3D keys to registry. It is explained in previus test post.

Tested hardware: notebook ASUS A6KM : AMD Turion 64 1800MHz, 1GB-RAM DDR, nVidia GeForce 7300 Go (it means mobile) with nVidia driver 169.12.

What does not

I have read previus rating. Maybe I have done something wrong, but i have clean wine with the same registry entry as previus post (Direct3D part).

I have problem with switching resolution at Sands Of Time. Here is it better. The game falls as SOT, but in same cases is swithing succesful, I doesn't care, I played ('cause of performance) at 800x600 which is default.

That isn't the reason why i have rated gold.
When the resolution is (somehow) switched to 1024x768 performance rapidly falls (it's a bug).

I have trouble with loading saved game. It's every other succesful. First is loading very very slow and game falls after that. When I started the game again, it's ok. Next case is fall and so on. It's little pitty, but I could live (play) with it ;-).

Same behaviur i had seen when I was creating my profile (I see it is reported by other testers too). The game falls, but at next start I had seen, the profile was created and I could choose it and start the game.


What was not tested

'Cause of perfomance, I am playing with lowest settings of details, trilinear filtering and in 800x600.
So I have not tested the higher setting.

Additional Comments

I also tried Crossover games 7.0 demo. It has much better performance (good work cxgames team) and swithing resolution was every succesful. Also performance in 1024x768 is the same as in 800x600, good. Problem with loading saved game and creating the profile is the same. But there is one thing, why I am playing Warrior Within in wine. The picture (or screen) in game sometimes started blink with the same picture turned upside down. After some steps it dissapears and everything is allright again. Along in the game are these cases more and more frequented and longer, thats makes game worse playable. PS.: Please excuse bad english, I am not good at translating to english.
