Selected Test Results (selected in 'Test Results' table below)
The game works flawlessly, the rating is gold because there are some settings to do and use a little trick to set the resolution.
What does not
Changing resolution fullscreen.
The game crashes on exit, but there are no ill effects.
What was not tested
Nothing. I installed all the five episodes in an environment made as explained in the extra comments: once verified all serials and set all the resolutions I could play the whole series without any problem.
Here are the settings I did.
$ mkdir -p Tales/env
$ export WINEPREFIX="$PWD"/Tales
$ export XDG_DATA_HOME="$WINEPREFIX"/env
$ winetricks -q sandbox gecko d3dx9
Using regedit or editing the file Tales/user.reg you need to
change the DllOverrides: keep only d3dx9_41 as `native',
all others must be removed or put to `builtin.'
$ wine LaunchOfTheScreamingNarwhal_Setup.exe
When the installer asks if you want to update DirectX,
say `Don't check DirectX'
$ cd "Tales/drive_c/Tales of Monkey Island/Launch of the Screaming Narwhal"
$ wine explorer /desktop=Wine,800x600 MonkeyIsland101.exe
This way we start the game inside a Wine desktop: the first time
copy and paste your serial and verify it. The game might crash afterthis, but it is needed only the first time.
Using the Wine desktop is needed to set the wanted resolution,
once done you can start normally.
It is important to use `sandbox' in winetricks otherwise the game will same its settings in "$HOME/Telltale Games".
To get the launcher working if it doesn't load for you:
1) Use winetricks to install IE7 (NOT 8).
2) After installing IE7, install and launch the game.
3) On the launcher, there will be a small box to enter your serial number. Paste it into the box and hit enter. After a few seconds, a lot of error popups will appear. Wait a little longer and the serial number input will change into a link to start the game. Kill the popups with "wineserver -k" and load the launcher again to start the game.
4) This step is completely optional, but if you want to do it anyways you may. Use winetricks to install "msxml3", and then the launchers will have graphics and animations. You will get ActiveX and "script error" popups from IE; click "yes" for the ActiveX ones and "no" for the script ones. Click the button on the bottom-right and enter your serial number.
