Additional Comments

Needs native d3dx9_36.dll. To avoid frequent crashes you need to install native msvcrt.dll (winetricks vcrun6). Disabling shadows considerably boosts framerate. Plays best in fullscreen mode, virtual desktop mode has keyboard and mouse issues. Weird fonts in the game, especially letter 'p'. Preferred ORM is fbo (backbuffer is way too slow).
