As it comes when you buy it. There is a patch, but it only fixes bugs with the logic of the puzzles, not the engine.

Selected Test Results

What works

  • The installer, with background music, installs the game directly from the retail discs; it also creates a desktop shortcut. Very tidy.

  • The game launches, but does not occupy the fullscreen. Instead it only occupies its own 1024x768 window - without a border.

  • The intro video, and subsequent videos play, extremely slowly, but with audio (also very slow).

  • The main menu is displayed, and works perfectly. The options menu works very slowly, but is usable.

  • The game's loading screen shows, and seems to complete loading.

What does not

  • Upon starting the game, the very slow video is shown. After it is either skipped or finishes, the loading screen is shown. When loading is complete, the program closes.

  • Trying to run the game from a terminal results in just a blank screen, if clicked, the program closes.

Additional Comments

3D rendering seems to be handled by "Granny 3D". And I know Bink is used for video. I don't have DirectX installed, and the game claims to require DirectX 9.0c. This leads me to believe that if I could get Bink video to run smoothly, and sort out DirectX 9.0c on here, the game might be perfect.
