Instalation of both the game and the patch worked perfectly.
The game works if you do the dll override.
Sound and music both work too.
What does not
Fonts have their tops clipped off (words are still legible, just look funny).

The beta patch 1.3 public beta 4 requires a special workaround in order to get it working properly in Wine.
1) Run 'winecfg'
2) Go to 'libraries' tab
3) Add a new DLL override titled 'dbghelp'
4) Ensure that it uses the following settings: 'Native then builtin'
This should allow you to play BZ2 v 1.3pb4 providing your videocard drivers have proper 3D, and you are using the right compatibility settings (Win98 is recommended)
All future test reports where this has not been done for 1.3pb4 will be rejected.
