Additional Comments

You have either to crack the game in order to avoid the copy protection (even if you downloaded it legally) or you have to follow the following instructions from the Tellgames forums: I followed the instruction (downloadable version) in order to install ies4linux. Important: Switch wine version to "Vista". You are then able to enter your serial number and start the game. Enjoy.

HowTo / Notes

Fix for wine >= 1.11
Due to a regression in wine (or rather wine-gecko) the activation will fail. Use the patching script here: Alternatively, if you switch wine versions you can use an older version to activate.
