Practically unplayable on Windows XP and newer, crashes with segfault on lol3.dat whenever a video is about to play. This can be avoided by hitting esc key to skip it, but this requires reflexes and obviously depraves you of whatever bits of the story is revealed in them. Some have managed to run the game by removing certain background applications, but there seems to be no agreement what those are.
