Nothing. The game became a complete "garbage" since the latest test.
What does not
Installation failures: 1) If running "setup.exe" from a different directory, the installation program fails to find the required files. 2) Changing the directory to the home of "setup.exe" allows one to start the installation, but it crashes at the very first step. The game seems to start, "freezing" at the black screen - this is where it fails to playback the opening movie. Right-clicking with the mouse skips the movie... and gets you to another black screen. This is where the game freezes completely.
What was not tested
Well, almost everything :-)
This is probably the problem of Ubuntu (or X11 in general), since it's not the only game that causes this, but right after the start the game window produced by wine loses focus and all your input goes into your Linux UI. You have to "Alt-Tab" (or whatever works for you) to switch back to the game window.
