Selected Test Results

What works

Game Loads, sound (not music) plays, game is technically playable.

What does not

Sprites render incorrectly; the transparent parts render as big boxers around the characters.  CPU Use will occasionally spike, causing the game to slow down noticeably. During the opening cinematic, some sprites render kinda flakily.

 Music does not play, because the game uses Windows Media Player as a backend for playing its mp3 music files.

 Game will not start unless you install the DirectX redist in Wine.

Improving Performance
by Mark Sutherland on Monday August 29th 2011, 22:53
Using ddr = opengl (I just use WineTricks for this) allows the game to run at very acceptable speed, as long as special effects are set to off in the main menu of the game. It should run well under these settings on Wine 1.3.21-24.

Wine 1.3.25 and beyond seem to have sound issues (I also had a peculiar graphic error in Wine 1.3.27, which I was able to repeat, but I can't seem to repeat it any longer -- must have conflicted with a WineTrick). Also, do not run this (or I suspect any app) under Wine 1.3.20, as it will run havoc on your registry.

DirectSound will work, but it will cause music to stop playing. When DirectMusic is applied after this, the menu music will work, but I was unable to play the game without crashing. Perhaps an additional driver is required..?

If I work up the patience I may add a Test Result, but I suggest someone submit a bug for the loss of sound in current revisions in the meantime.
to prevent fullscreen...

To prevent the application from going fullscreen (which crashed my X server) you can start it like this:

wine explorer /desktop=Iji,800x600 "C:\\Program Files\\iji\\iji.exe"
