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)
Game intro movies, Game Save, Game Load, In-Game movie sequences, In-Game motion between locations, Game exit.
What does not
Game first menu, In-Game Preferences, Restore /load/ menu redraws badly (switching desktops shows the content as long as Alt key is held in Fluxbox), Game flips the picture of the main screeen with the last movie/static image immediately. Seems like the buffers problem.
What was not tested
Tested using nVidia GeForce 7600 GT with driver 1.0.9639+220.127.116.11-14.8 on XOrg 7.3+10ubuntu10.
First, you need to apply patch from Bug 1347. Game won't redraw properly without this patch.
Install the game into c:\games\zgi.
Create folders c:\games\zgi\cd1, c:\games\zgi\cd2
Copy the complete contents of each CD into its respective folder you've created in step 2.
Modify file c:\games\zgi\inquis.zix to have following info at the head of file:
Run winecfg and set the following values:
Applications / Windows version: Windows XP
Graphics / Emulate a virtual desktop: 640x480
(required, in 0.9.24 game doesn't start)
(in 0.9.35 transition videos don't play without virtual desktop)
Audio / OSS Driver
(Important! ALSA isn't functional in Wine 0.9.24 for this game)
(Edit: wine 0.9.35 ALSA works as usual)
Switch X to 16bpp
Run the game wine ./zgiwin.exe

Loading Save Game Crash

I recently tried installing this game in Vista, and I see the exact same loading save game crash, as well as some occasional major redraw problems. Seems it's not just wine.
