Additional Comments

This is the Steam version of the game. Thanks to SEGA, there is no longer any remnants of the disgusting GFWL which plagued us previously. The only present issue is the Anti-Aliasing one. If it's enabled, then you will get a pink screen saying not enough video memory at the main menu and character avatars . Other than that though, it runs just fine. I needed -no-dwrite as an argument passed to Wine, otherwise Steam wouldn't display any text. THIS IS A CLEAN Wine PREFIX. Nothing was installed or added. This may not work for AMD or Intel graphics users.
