Selected Test Results

What works

- gameplay (i have noticed the game sometimes speeding up a bit but this goes away quickly, so far everything is playable without any problem)

- installer

- no cd patch NOT needed

What does not

- launching the game if screen resolution is not 800x600 (launcher is broken on other resolutions)

- small graphical bugs in the first cutscenes, but i had those on Windows XP, too

- sometimes the sentences get cut off while talking and then the next sentence is played, so you should keep your subtitles on and read quick (at least in my german edition of the game)

- EA registration buttons in at the end of the installer have no text

Additional Comments

To install, the file "Setup/Setup.exe" provided on your Harry Potter COS disk should be used for installation. The autorun.exe didnt work for me. But all in all very simple. Everything works, just switch your screen resolution to 800x600 before playing or use the virtual desktop option of wine. Have fun playing this classic game!
