The minimum requirements to play this game was achieved, that's means, the installation and running the game was done right.
The installation program, based in Windows's Java Virtual Machine runs for the first time without major problems (there is no more a white screen in each window), except some flickering. I select the standard options, but I choose not to upgrade DirectX (Wine have a compatiblity layer designed to this!).
The game will crash if I don't override the d3dx9_36.dll, because there some system call's that are buggy. (I download it form fmtux.com website)
Playing the game, which have new options and a renovated interface, but I don't play too much.
What does not
The only issue is the override of d3dx9_36.dll, without this the game just crash.
Also, you should create the registry key to define the amount of video memory to activate the 3D mode.
What was not tested
Testing the 3D.
Playing more than some minutes.
