What works

Almost everything. Gameplay, all sounds and music, videos and multiplayer (needs DLL overrides for DirectPlay) via TCP/IP using Hamachi. Problems with multilplayer.

What does not

Multiplayer is unstable, it disconnects randomly (receiving some Wine error dialogs then disconnecting from game), sometimes causes infinite hangs (then need to kill the game), I don't know the reason. I played via TCP/IP using Hamachi (version 2.0.1.13, beta quality).

What was not tested

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO
The game does not run correctly in Wine 0.9.37. Earlier and newer versions work fine

This game requires a crack to work.

Installing the patches is highly recommended, as they provide fixes for serious bugs in the game (not Wine related).

There are different patches for the different versions of the game

UK - various

Multiplayer
To get multiplayer working, place dpnsvr.exe and the DLLs in this archive in Wine's windows/system32 directory. Then, start winecfg and add dll overrides (native, builtin) for the following DLLs: dplayx, dpnet, dpnhpast and dpwsockx. Finally, update your registry by running 'wineprefixcreate'.
