Counterintuitively, this game actually works BETTER with Wine-provided libraries than with Microsoft-provided libraries. So, if you have those DirectX 9 overrides in place, DISABLE THEM or you will be left without sound. This game gets a Platinum rating since it works flawlessly with a Wine setup OUT OF THE BOX, but the rating actually WORSENS with external libraries.
Although the game runs steadily at 60FPS, wine selects 640x480@75hz which causes visible jerkiness (at least on LCD screens). Quick fix is to disable vertical refresh > 60hz in xorg.conf.
# nvidia device section
Option "UseEdidFreqs" "false"
This disables override of HorizSync and VertRefresh values in xorg.conf.
# monitor section
VertRefresh 56.0 - 60.0
Lower value for your monitor can be different. Consult your monitor manual.
Also make sure to set HorizSync to appropriate value.
