What works

Basically *everything*. The game appears to be fully playable. 

What does not

The save feature works intermittently. What I mean by this is save frequent and save often because it cannot take being left a while. For example during level 4 (which is where I have found it starts to cause issues) if it is left too long, once clicking on the save button, it'll just freeze on the saving screen and drop out completely. 


It is impossible to record the evidence or get the bug report because the report doesn't load. (Ever, even though it says that Wine has a problem). 


Secondly there's an intermittent issue with Visual Studio again that will cause the game to drop out.


Finally there's no guarantee that the save feature will actually work and in some cases after a drop out, it will corrupt all prior game saves in that, they are removed.

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO
If install crashes, try again after running winetricks dcom98. Unfortunately, the game won't work with this override enabled, so after installed, go in to winecfg and under the Libraries tab, remove the rpcrt4 entry.
