What works

  • Installation
  • Playing with software renderer

What does not

  • Playing with hardware D3D renderer
  • Precise aiming with the mouse

With wine-1.1.5 the ingame engine finally receives input from the mouse, so normal gameplay is possible.

The hardware Direct3D renderer is still not working correctly (see the attached bugs) and corrupts all textures in the game. Furthermore rendering is dead slow.
Leaves the user with the possibility to switch to the software renderer, which does indeed work quite good. Visuals aren't that good in software mode, but at least you can see the correct textures now.

Like mentioned above input now kinda works, but isn't very precise. That means that you get a very laggy and skipping mouse cursor / pointing experience.
The only thing you can (currently) do about that is to fiddle around with the ingame mouse setting and with the X mouse settings (especially mouse cursor acceleration). Tweaking this gets you a relatively stable mouse input. Again, it's not very precise but it should work for now.
