Screen Shots

A moderately-developed SC4 DE region running in an emulated desktop under CX Games 8.1.4 on Kubuntu 9.10. The graphical corruption in the lower edges of the city "Knise" is a bug caused by saving when running in higher custom resolutions, such as 1920x1200. This bug also happens on Windows and does not impact gameplay once within a city.
