Before installation, use Winetricks to install VCRUN2005. If not it will not run, as it is expecting MSVCR80.DLL. It may expect other .DLL's in the Windows directory, but I could not find out, so its best to just install that VC run file. The Game
What does not
Installation may error out. It did on mine and the previous installation. Says something about Ending Prematurely. You can just exit out of that Dialog, and quit the install. It HAS installed the files. The Game CD must be left in the drive to play the game.
What was not tested
All of the game, I just started playing it.
I have told you to install vcrun2005 via WineTricks, which installs some Microsoft C++ dll files. Also, in wine set the resolution for 1024x768 or whatever is below your normal resolution. If you try running it at full screen, you may not be able to exit out when it errors out. Also, at least on mine, fullscreen was not centered and the edges where offscreen.
