Additional Comments

To successfully change screen resolution in the game: press the appropriate function key (e.g. F9 for 1024x768) then press F6 twice. Windowed mode is not working correctly but this is reported by Windows users too when desktop color depth is set to 32-bit, so it's not certainly wine's fault. Installed in a clean wineprefix, no dll overrides or registry hacks were needed. Tested with an Nvidia gfx card. Admin note: rating changed to conform to the rating definitions.
