Installation works fine
What does not
Right after starting up the Ankh-Demo an error-message comes up:
Unknown exception -
Pina:Application:Init -> Pina:Application:Init -> WinMain
What was not tested
I have done some testing before and was advised to use the GL_Renderer. Right before starting the demo I edited bin/release/plugins.cfg and changed my settings. So I didn't test the initial configuration.
Will submit my backtrace later on.

ÂÂÂÂUse wine-0.9.31 .. 0.9.43 to play this game with the default Direct3D9 renderer because of several regressions. These old versions should work except the item icons in the inventory may not be drawn correctly (bug #21354).
The maintainer would appreciate if you would find out whether one of these old veÂrsions works better than the others.
You can use much more recent versions of Wine (such as 1.1.34/36) if you change bin/release/plugins.cfg to use the GL renderer instead. The speech output issue (bug #21209) may still affect your machine.Â
