Restaurant Empire

"Starting with nothing except some cash and a passion for food, build a restaurant from the bottom up - hire waiters, decorate, even cook the meals! Buy, build, outsell and underprice your competition.

Will you use your culinary wizardry to out-cook chefs? What tactics and strategies will you employ to buy out the competition? You decide. With a combination of business strategy and role-playing game styles plus a free-form sandbox game mode, three huge cities, and over 30 playable chefs and a host of locations to travel to, Restaurant Empire is an epicurean delight of gastronomic proportions!" - quote source: http://www.3dgamers.com/games/restaurantempire/

What works

The title screen and up to the character creation screen.

What does not

The intro (showing a chef cooking with a pan) crashed if it was allowed to run for perhaps three seconds.  Mouse pointer is attracted to the center of the screen. Any movement of the mouse results in movement of the pointer but it immediately returns to the center.

Additional Comments

This is the Restaurant Empire release from GOG.com. The crashing intro can be skipped by clicking during the title screen. I tried avoiding the mouse pointer issue by setting an AppDefaults for re.exe to disable mouse warping and tried disabling xorg acceleration. Unfortunately, while the cursor can then move freely, the game's idea of where the mouse cursor is still does not match where the cursor is drawn. This effectively renders the game unplayable.
