What works

Almost everything (I've just finished it again under Wine) but only after a bit of workaround due to some bugs (see Extra comments), one of them leading to the loss of the use of the mouse in the game menu, but for being able to play the game.

That's what I mean by almost...

What does not

Nothing.

Additional Comments

Here's a list of problems and solutions / workarounds I've needed: - Problem with x86_64 Wine on Fedora 12 x86_64. Solution = uninstall all Wine packages and install only i686 ones. See http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?p=1315256 for more infos... - Problem with my onboard graphic (Intel GMA x4500HD on Fujitsu-Siemens laptop). Solution = regedit => Direct3D => OffScreenRenderingMode = backbuffer and adapting the size of VideoMemorySize=256 (in my case). - Problem with sound = neither pulseaudio or alsa worked well. Solution = using OSS, after re-enabling it in Fedora 12. See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=472741 for more infos... - Problem with mouse "escaping" the game. Solution = regedit => DirectInput => MouseWarpOverride = force and x11 Driver => DXGrab=Y (this last one can be set in winecfg). With this you can play fine, but you have to use the keyboard to navigate in the menu of the game. See http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6971 for more infos. - Problem with "ghost" X mouse cursor = an "image" of the X session cursor stays fixed in the game and videos. Solution(s) = quickly moving the cursor as the game is launched (tricky to achieve & look stupid =;) or using a WM (Fluxbox for exemple) other than Gnome, as it definitively related to it. See http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-925046.html for more infos... Could perhaps be http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=20362 but I'm not sure if it doesn't need to open a specific bug...
