What works

- Game is not installable from CD's, but from HD. I had to copy the content of the 3 CD's into one directory on HD and run the installation from HD.

- Running the game after deleting the LSANS.TTF files from the game directory manually, saving a copy of the LSANS.fot file as LSANS.TFF and doing a chown root:root for the new LSANS.TTF. 

Requires a NO-CD-Crack.

- Playing the game (Singleplayer), with very few flaws (see below)

What does not

- Game refuses sometimes to start. Needs a few tries sometimes

- Foreign advisor (F4) is corrupt, relationships between the countries are not shown

- Replay mode when a game is finished is not working.


What was not tested

Multiplayer, Scenarios

Additional Comments

It's my first entry to this db here, so I'm uncertain about the correct rating. Because the game runs very well after a bit of work and the corrupt foreign advisor and replay mode is not critical I rate it silver.
