Gameplay, Single and PBEM.
What does not
Yet to find anything unworking.
What was not tested
A full game until the end, however several turns were completed without issue.
I installed the program and then overrode ddraw.dll and spgraph.dll using the window mode patch as directed in this thread: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/emperorfadingsuns/discussions/0/882959527753969880/ (Direct link: http://www.mediafire.com/?toa3noniv193tt2 ) Then set wine to emulate a desktop for the program and it runs in full color without issue.
