Additional Comments

The 3D view would appear in wine 1.1.9 but now it's broken again - I get the following fatal errors in the console: err:ddraw:IDirectDrawImpl_CreateNewSurface IWineD3DDevice::CreateSurface failed. hr = 8876017c err:ddraw:IDirectDrawImpl_CreateSurface IDirectDrawImpl_CreateNewSurface failed with 8876017c The game is also really slow to load, and I get a lot of warnings about not being able to convert to DirectDraw pixel formats 62, 63, and 64. Finally, text blinks in and out of existence while the game is loading, and the fonts are generic fonts rather than the ones included with the game.
