Z95 + Expansion Kit lets Z run pseudo-natively on Windows and alters the game a bit. It also adds a few more missions and a map-editor.
The game works quite well using this XP-msi installer even though it's sometimes a little slow that makes it also a little hard to use the mouse in the game.
Videos works fine.
Sound works with cutbacks (read on "what does not work)
What does not
During the game and the videos you can still see the menu bar from the main menu (please take a look at the screenshots). Even though the mouse won't move into the menu bar it is still annoying because you loose a few pixel at the bottom of the screen.
The next minor problem is an sound issu which ecourse every once in awhile. The sound gets lost for a few seconds (this can take up to 60 sec.) but after this it is back on again. It is really just a minor problem.
What was not tested
Multiplayer (will follow)
The game works in general but has quite a few bugs.

Z95 won't run on either Win XP, nor Wine. In order to get it to work, a hack is needed.
However, Z95 doesn't work that well. It's terribly slow and the mouse lags a bit. These issues are also present when running on XP while using this patch. Also, the minimap isn't shown and no music can be heard. The DOS version works a good deal better, use DOSBox for it.
