What does not
What was not tested
Nothing past launching the game could be tested.
The HOWTO for running this game is out of date; presumably, it contains instructions on how to get past the debugger detection that prevents the game from launching. The file the HOWTO suggests using is no longer available, so the HOWTO information is not useful. (What would be helpful is information on what this pe.exe did so that those who want to run the game can re-create it.)

Must set windows version to Win NT 4.0 for this application.
-takes care of "non-existent pagefile error"
Must also use windowed mode
-takes care of lack of rendering of title screen
Install directplay via winetricks, only worked for Patch #2 as of May-10-2011.
See http://wiki.winehq.org/DirectPlayGames for additional install information.
Note: This has been fixed in recent versions of wine.
Hi I have coded a small program to fix a bug in Wine which causes an error message on launch, by changing a 1 value in the header of the main program executable. To use it, open a terminal and cd to the install directory, so something like:
cd .wine/drive_c/shiny/sacrifice/then download this program by entering:
wget jeffz.name/code/pe.exethen to fix your game executable (assuming it is called sacrifice.exe):wine pe.exe sacrifice.exe
