Works With 0.74 (2017-03-02 09:15) tooly111
This game works perfectly with 0.74 except for very minor sound glitches and a clicking sound when the fmv scenes are playing.
For the game to run smoothly you must select "Sound Blaster Pro" when setting it up otherwise the fmv scenes are unwatchable. I also selected "Ensoniq" for the music and "640 x 480" for the video.

The main settings I used in the config are:
[sdl]
fullscreen=true
fulldouble=false
fullresolution=original
windowresolution=original
output=ddraw
autolock=true
sensitivity=100
waitonerror=true
usescancodes=true
priority=higher,normal
mapperfile=mapper-0.74.map

buffer too big to fit in cache!

The game plays fluidly, but the cutscenes stutter and lag to hell. setting cycles to 7,000 manually, and disabling auto/max cycles let's the scenes play fluidly. but then it's necessary to raise the cycles to play the actual game fluidly. After doing this, the cutscenes will not play properly, even if you go back down to 7,000 cycles.

Works perfectly in Dosbox except for the movies which stutter madly. The game itself is very fluent though.
Tekwar supported in dynamic mode and using DOS/32A (2005-03-05 10:16) red_avatar
In dynamic mode, you can pump up the cycles to 20-30000 making the game very fluent without the sound breaking up. I used the DOS32A extender replacing DOS4GW which works fine. Fully supported!
