What works

So far, everything runs and performance is decent. Even the Museum runs. 

What does not

Game will not start without DotNetFX. This is automatically installed in Windows. You have to do it yourself, see workarounds.


You need to install DotNetFX3.5 as well as the latest DX9 dlls. The game will not enter actual game without it. Intro will run, menus will work, but the game itself will not start and just crash out.

I ran the game in a 32-bit Wineprefix, unknown if this was necessary.

What was not tested


Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

Runs smoothly with very few graphical glitches (primarily during cutscenes) and is fully playable without major glitches.
