Additional Comments

From a clean install, I installed Wine-Doors, and installed their version of DirectX and other recommended packages, and then followed the AppDB guide for installing Lord of the Rings, getting it to work flawlessly. These are the only things I did before deciding to give a shot at POTBS again. I downloaded the net installer from: Ran the installer, but skipped DirectX installation. I then ran Pirates from the Application -> Wine menu. Logged in, and it proceeded to update. Update. Update took about 24 hours on a very fast connection :(, but other than that, full graphics settings, music, and sound worked FLAWLESSLY without changing any wine settings, drivers, registry, or anything else. That is why I am delighted to give this game a PLATINUM rating! Thank you Wine Team, as well as Flying Lab Studios in whatever way they contributed.
