I'm getting memory allocation problems after quite a
bit of game play, no videos yet, I haven't tried
installing and I always use no-cd patches.

The speeds a bit choppy, but playable, and there are a
few minor graphics gliches (I've got a test case for
one so it shouldn't be too hard to fix) I would rather
have slow gameplay than buggy gameplay.

Out of the box installs require a bit more than
DirectX but hopefully the OLE and MSI work that's been
going on lately should help that out.

I'm also thinking working on half-life 2 and possibly
WoW and Sim 2 as some point, but I may just try to get
the DirectX 9 implementation as complete as possible
first. [unless the makers of Sim 2 give me enough
money to pay the rent!]
