Most of the graphics works properly with a few exceptions. Installation can be done using the -silent option, but it cannot be installed from the UI.
What does not
Rippling water appears as artifaction across the sky. Also, some of the lighting is distorted. This may be due to my ATI Radeon X300. I have experienced similar problems before and they all seem to be related to pixel shader functions on specific ATI cards. The biggest disappointment is the gameplay. While playable, the first cutscene where Esher appears does not load therefore making it impossible to continue.
What was not tested
Gameplay, only the graphics functions were tested.
