Additional Comments

Since wine 1.8 or so, Traffic Giant is unable to start because it can't change the display bitdepth to 16bits. There is a workaround: running the game in Xephyr (or 16bit mode), another problem was also introduced in the later versions: the game is very, very unresponsive and takes up a lot of CPU cycles. If I were you, I'd stick with wine 1.6.2. It had an annoying volume problem, but only when starting the game. Unfortunately, for me, wine 1.6.2 does not seem to be able to work with my AMD open-source drivers.
