What works

Software 3D acceleration, movies, sound, MIDI music (after copying these DLL's: dmband.dll, dmime.dll, dmloader.dll, dmstyle.dll, dmsynth.dll, dmusic.dll, and eax.dll and telling WINE to use the native versions) gameplay, the Chocobo game, the configuration program...

What does not

Hardware acceleration is glitchy; when it is enabled the colours are wrong in menus, and the images flicker.

Workarounds

What was not tested

Playing the entire game.

Hardware tested

Additional Comments

I would rate it as golden if the hardware 3D acceleration worked correctly; that would make it almost perfect; the only thing that would stop it from being platinum would be the DLL overrides in that case.
