The game works and everything else. It seems to work better than it did in 1.2 Wine.
What does not
The game will not complete install without fonts from a windows pc.
What was not tested
You need to get all the fonts from a windows computer otherwise you get the incomplete install error at 2% when launching it. Having the native fonts from a windows pc the install completion will go through as normal. Copying the game from a windows hard drive will allow the game to start up with the intro movie but then crash out. The latest update is what broke it. But the fix is simple. To fix the problem find a windows computer with Vista or 7 preferably windows Xp might work too. Use a USB flash drive. Open drive C then windows folder then open the Fonts folder. Copy and paste all the fonts to the USB drive. It will be about 340mb of fonts and files. Then put them in Wine's virtual C Drive which is C:\windows\Fonts and replace them all. Then the game will work after restarting steam and launching the game.
