Additional Comments

The time taken to load a level was sometimes longer than usual, but always seemed to get there in the end. HW/Sw details: Game detected video card as ATI Radeon HD 4700 (actually FirePro M7740, RV740) xorg-server 1.13.4 mesa 9.2_pre20130528 xf86-video-ati 7.1.0 (open source radeon driver) Have given Platinum rating, because generally worked flawlessly without any tweaking - the missing sound segments may be a gog problem (I have seen similar on other gog titles).

HowTo / Notes

Putting the mouse sensitivity to a max and the mouse speed in your desktop as slow as possible will make the game very playable
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 :)
