I have had no problems with this game. It installs, and runs flawlessly. It's an old fav of mine; while it is repetitive, emphasizes growth of the character through monetary means rather than by increasing experience, it is still very well put together, and weapon randomness is great (so many different enchants, so little time...). D3d9 is really the only winetricks needed, but others you might include are common controls, corefonts, and maybe dotnet (if you cheat or want to use trainers). This is a very playable, platinum game, doesn't need xinput and only needs directplay for multiplayer. If you do put in directplay, use the hosts file override as well, as it will allow the program to check for servers in your hosts file and can keep it from crashing (this happened only once without the hosts file, and afterward didn't happen again in several other tests). Dotnet is only needed if you wish to utilize multiple apps in the same wrapper in order to use a trainer or cheat program etc. Macs still have some issues with window switching in X11 (whn switching between windows running in that environment, only the primary window is really accessible; and some cheats\trainers have issues due to dynamic memory allocation so there are no guarantees that they will work). The game itself is completely playable.
