Game is playable - Sound issue is not due to WINE but a known bug in the game itself.
What does not
These issues are very minor and don't interfere with game play.
Sound fails, but this is NOT a Wine issue, this also occurs on Win XP and higher versions. There is a notation about in Readme.txt of the original CD.
This game was originally designed for Windows 95 and DOS.
Game will not install from CD, again NOT a Wine issue. See comments on how to install from CD manually.
What was not tested
To install; 1. Copy all files from CD to HD 2. Edit ALIFE.INI file entries; Resource file = *your path*\ALIFE.000 CD Path = *your path*\ALIFE.000 Save games = *your path*\ALIFE 3. Save and run 'wine alife.exe' * is where you installed the files. This is a bug within the game and the only way you can get it to install on any OS.
