Installation of the game works fine.
What does not
Starting the game does not work. Starting it with wine set to windows ME or earlier comes up with an error saying:
A debugger has been detected (this is the window title) Unload the debugger and try again.
Starting the game with wine set to windows 2000 or later comes up with the following before crashing1:
wine: Unhandled page fault on read access to 0xffdff020 at address 0x7fadd0c5 (thread 001e), starting debugger...
