The game installs fine.
It starts up, and you're able to input the cd-key.
The game runs.
What does not
The game menu background is completely black instead of an endless wormhole being rendered.
The mouse has a black box around it.
Some small parts of the UI are blackened.
Most textures ingame are completely black, some models are not rendered at all. (making the game not much fun to play)
Patching the game doesn't work, the patch fails at extracting the contents.
What was not tested
Network and Internet play.

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
