Old test results
The test results you have selected are very old and may not represent the current state of Wine.
Selected Test Results (selected in 'Test Results' table below)
Nothing. The game became a complete "garbage" since the latest test.
What does not
1) If running "setup.exe" from a different directory, the installation program fails to find the required files.
2) Changing the directory to the home of "setup.exe" allows one to start the installation, but it crashes at the very first step.
The game seems to start, "freezing" at the black screen - this is where it fails to playback the opening movie. Right-clicking with the mouse skips the movie... and gets you to another black screen. This is where the game freezes completely.
What was not tested
Well, almost everything :-)
This is probably the problem of Ubuntu (or X11 in general), since it's not the only game that causes this, but right after the start the game window produced by wine loses focus and all your input goes into your Linux UI. You have to "Alt-Tab" (or whatever works for you) to switch back to the game window.
To play the opening video, you must have Indeo 4.1 codec installed.
Run "regedit" and locate the following registry key (create "drivers32" if it's missing): HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Drivers32
add a String key named "vidc.iv41", for its value input "ir41_32.dll"
obtain "ir41_32.dll" file (Indeo codec) and copy it into "windows/system32" folder in your wine installation.
In-game small video clips require MS RLE video codec (msrle32.dll). You can register it the same way as described above, just name the new String key "vidc.mrle" and enter "msrle32.dll" for its value. However, this doesn't help much... and you will have to go with blank rectangles for now. Or switch off the in-game video clips in the game settings menu.
The game is prone to crashes when run under "non-native" locales. Make sure you change your locale to "ja_JP.UTF-8" before running wine. A one-liner "LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8 wine pd4.exe" works fine for me.
About the issues
The game seems to have issues with a "true" full-screen in wine, so it should be run with "Virtual Desktop" wine option enabled.
