Test Results

Selected Test Results

What works

  • CD protection
  • In-game menu
  • Game in general

What does not

Intro movie

Workarounds

Had to apply the -skip_intro argument. I recommend using a virtual desktop, but as long as your monitor supports 800x600 or 1024x768, it should work without using a virtual desktop.

What was not tested

Playing a whole game or using the expansion pack

Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU: AMD
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

I set the Windows version to Windows XP and installed using a 32bit prefix. The copy protection seems to work best on NT based windows', not old DOS based versions.

I'm using Gnome with Wayland backend, so this test was done using the XWayland server.

Did you have to change the color depth to 16 in xorg.conf? Please state so if you did.
