Installation and Tutorial levels. Everything seems to run smoothly as long as the configuration is set to Windows 98 not XP.
What does not
The 3rd patch for the game mentions requiring directx 8 and installing it results in most fonts disappearing and the game failing to run.
What was not tested
Game play beyond the tutorials and multiplayer.

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
