What works

Almost everything (exceptions noted otherwise) works fine; a little slow, but otherwise okay. I could even load my games that were saved in a previous install running under WinXP.

What does not

Full screen crashes immediately, but runs okay in windowed mode; standard mouse cursor available under animated in-game mouse cursor.

No animated battle transition effects.

Game is slightly laggy, detection of mouse clicks seems a little 'funny'.

Workarounds

What was not tested

Only tested two levels, did not test spell effects extensively, nor experiment with many unit animations, etc.

Hardware tested

Additional Comments

I'd say this is a "high silver/low gold" rated game, at the moment... runs okay out of the box, but not perfect; could probably be improved by further fiddling with DLL overrides or whatnot, but I honestly don't care to exert the effort.
