- Installation (in Win95 compatibility mode)
- Starting the game (menu's, picking a character, etc.)
- in-game sound effects and smack video seems to work
What does not
- Intro movie does not play
- Playing the game: both software and hardware rendering mode refuse to work properly. The game runs in 320x240 mode, which requires Xephyr. Even with a virtual desktop and compatibility mode, the game crashes after just starting a new race.
- No network connection could be established
What was not tested
- Joystick support was not tested (I don't have a midi port anymore)
Regardless of the game crashing, it would be unpleasant to play this game on a modern computer in a 320 by 240 window. The only easy way to scale wine applications at the moment of writing is to use VNC.

Use Xephyr to emulate a display with the required resolution.
Use xrandr to identify the desired display output and if the minimum supported resolution is lower than 320x240, then do:
xrandr --newmode "320x240_120.10" 12.39 320 328 360 400 240 241 244 258 -HSync +Vsync xrandr --addmode 320x240_120.10
