Selected Test Results

What works

* Installing the game

* Playing the game (with no-CD patch)

* Saving/Loading games

* Quests

* Everything I've tried except for certain cutscenes

What does not

* Playing the game without a no-CD patch.

* There are eight WMV cutscenes which will not play. It is possible to view these using an external application like MPlayer. The cutscenes are found in the sequences/ folder. Be advised that the audio tracks are in separate files.

* If bloom shading is enabled then the game is slow (~8 FPS on a Core Duo/GeForce 8600M GT machine). If bloom shading is disabled, I get 20-40 FPS on maximum detail settings and the game still looks good.


What was not tested

* Have not played the game to completion.

Additional Comments

The game runs flawlessly with the crack and bloom shading disabled. Performance is good. There are a few minor glitches, but I cannot tell whether or not they are from the game or Wine, and they are seldom and hardly detract from gameplay anyway. The only problem I found was with the eight cutscenes, but as I reported it is easy to switch out of the game and view them with VLC or similar, so it's only a small problem. The game-engine cutscenes work without problems. Finally, the game is pretty fun!
