No HAL driver present.

Fair use/fair dealing exception

Pause menu and options menu do seem to be broken (in software mode).

There doesn't appear to be any gradients on ship selection in software mode with DxWnd either, so I'm guessing the software render isn't supposed to have them there.

I suspected the gradients were "hardware only." Why? Who knows.

I used the WIP70 to emulate the hardware graphics and DxWnd to emulate the CD drive (for redbook). It is fully working now.

Thanks for the assist.
