Additional Comments

Install this to a VM using the same procedures in the 1.1.35 test. You'll need a no cd patch to work around the Safe Disk Copy protection as stated in the test conducted in version 1.1.35. More Elaborate details may be found there. I'm using the "Wine Desktop" at 1024x768 and so far so good. Video performance is good.

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO
Putting the mouse sensitivity to a max and the mouse speed in your desktop as slow as possible will make the game very playable
HOWTO
Since wine version 1.1.36 the game no longer runs in fullscreen but you can simply workaround this issue by disabling one of the following options (or both if bug still present) at the graphics tab in winecfg:
1. let the window manager decode the window
2. let the window manager control the window

after disabling one of these the game runs like a charm again :)

Side note. If you have a very dark screen you can fix this by setting the gamma to around 1.6 with your videodriver utility. To do this you have to start the game first and then apply the temporary changes to the gamma. The ingame slider does not change the gamma but the brightness making the game look way too bright. Offcourse version 1.1.36 does not allow you to minimize the screen so to get around this. Start the app once then exit. Start your driver manager and put gamma to your liking, confirm then change the setting and quickly start uru. After 12 seconds the driver manager will change the gamma correctly :)
