What works

All I _needed_ for it to run was to use winetricks to install MSXML 3 (I'm not sure of the differences between 3,4,6...went with what was recommended), corefonts(not sure if it was necessary) and d3dx9_36 in the system32 folder.

Other than that, I used ATI's proprietary driver and turned off visual effects in the appearance panel (causes flickering).

Doesn't appear to need things like dotnet, vcrun etc like I previously stated.

What does not

Animated cursors. City progress bars (previously stated)
