I'm having a Problem launching this thing.
When I try to launch the game it automatically starts a hardware scan.
After the scan is completed it says that I have more than enough resources to run it on all counts except the pixel shader 1.1 support. That is weird because I know for a fact that My GPU has it(since this game ran just fine on my machine on win XP). Any thoughts?
Game does not start with wine-1.1.17

I tested Warrior Within with wine-1.1.16 and it does not start. It crashes right after profile creation/selection. I currently run it with wine-1.1.12. I did not try latest wine yet, but I think this problem is not fixed since it did not work with *17 either.
Can somebody confirm it?
Sound driver problem.

It seems that wine cannot initialize sound for POP. In diagnostic screen there is a red cross showing no sound detected and so game doesn't start at all. I've tried all the possible drivers OSS, Alsa etc. Any Ideas?

When I try to edit the controls (keyboard), every key label appears as "", instead of e.g. "w" no matter what I assigned them to. This applies also to the game hints; when it advices to press a certain key, it shows just . It is very annoying. Other than that, everything works just fine. Any suggestions?
fc 7, x86_64, wine 1.0 (but this bug appeared in some earlier versions too).

The following helped me play Prince of Persia with quite playable speed.
I had similar problems as described above like 2 fps speed etc.
I made the registries as pointed at the beginning, used the patched POP2.exe but things didn't work with wine.
Finally I decided to downgrade NVIDIA drivers so I found
the drivers actually solved the problem for me.
The driver version that allowed me to play prince of persia is:
