Installing the game. Installing the updates from the "stand-alone updater" at http://www.gearheadgarage.com/updates.htm The game using the Software DirectX 7 option from the launcher or manually issuing "ghg.exe -mustbehere -software"
What does not
Hardware DirectX 7 mode crashes wine 2 0x7e0e8d3e ActivateContext+0x55e() in wined3d (0x0032f634) 3 0x7e12334e drawPrimitive+0x1ae() in wined3d (0x0032f9b4) I think this is an ati fglrx driver issue though.
What was not tested
Everything was tested
Windows XP x64 cannot use DX7 Hardware either (at least with a 3870x2 and Catalyst 8.5). On Windows XP x64, using DX7 software mode, the game frequently locks-up (every few minutes) and needs its process, ghg.exe, killed. Wine with software mode is rock solid stable, however. Several hours of game play with no issues. Wine rocks!
