The game works fine with my i915 and i enjoy the gameplay though i know
it's not perfect and this release have a lot of limitations/bugs. I
removed buggy maps: beach bsodcastle geekopeak olivermath sandtrack
startrack olivermath volcano.
Upstream authors are working on 0.1. If you prefere we can wait the
release instead of upload this package.
