What works

Can be normally played, but needs:

  • Running steam
  • Mouse autocapture in fullscreen
  • Allow the window manager to control windows
  • Not allow window decoration
  • No virtual desktop
  • Resolution of ubuntu desktop must be the same as in game (doesn't change properly).
  • *dsound(native) library from winetricks to listen NPCs out of cinematographic scenes.
  • Keyboard is captured after a mouse left button click.

What does not

  • Sometimes mouse movement is restrained , but solved by pressing left mouse button.
  • Game crashes after some time (maybe CPU affinity setting with taskset to DX2Main.EXE is needed after each level loading).
  • Environmental sound is sometimes a little creepy with dsound.


What was not tested

  • Not played until the end. Only some levels.
  • Installation

Hardware tested
