What does not
Multiplayer is accessible after installing DirectPlay via winetricks but everything except Local Game is greyed out. (DPlay problem I see no workaround)

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
