    compat_comments: I have played through the whole game, and unlocked the contained versions of PoP 1 and 2.
    All water reflections are broken. This only rarely impacts the gameplay, namely when you have to collect sand from a downed enemy, but their body lies in a pool of water, and the broken rendering prevents you from seeing their exact location.
    Occasionally, there's a small border of 0.5-1 pixels with non-matching colors around the image.
    Text rendering is slightly off, it looks like one side is a bit cut off, while the other side has an extra border.
    Tha game itself plays fine, only rarely does the framerate dip below 29-30 fps. When it dips, its usually in areas with light/transparency effects, such as the pillars of light you use to save the game or the light reflection puzzles.
    I did not notice any other issues with the main game.
    The contained version of PoP 2 had the sound cutting out when I first launched it, but was fine on subsequent tries.
    The contained version of PoP 1 runs very slow (~9 fps).
