What works

Program installs without problems, connects to the server, displays menus, games list, news, seek table, lets edit preferences, displays popup windows with finger info, opens historical games and let one replay them, opens and displays correspondence games in progress, allows navigation around etc.

What does not

I was unable to observe any (online) game in progress. I got info like 'You are now observing game 81' on the console, but the game board is not at all displayed. At the same time, immediately after I request observing the game, the following warning is printed:

err:win:CreateWindowExA bad class name "RICHEDIT"
Apart from that, on the console there are some errors like
fixme:win:LockWindowUpdate (0x20368), partial stub!
fixme:win:LockWindowUpdate ((nil)), partial stub!
fixme:win:LockWindowUpdate (0x20368), partial stub!
fixme:win:LockWindowUpdate ((nil)), partial stub!
As the game is not displayed in the left pane (what usually happens) I suspect that the program fails to create the board window and just continues without it (but note that historical games are displayed properly, correspondence games too, in spite of the fact that both use the same graphics and similar layout!)


What was not tested

Online play. Considering the problems with watching other's games, I was afraid to try. Maybe I will try later, warning my opp beforehand.

Also, I did not test database functionality and engine analysis, will give it a try later and write about results.
