Installation. It must be run like this: $ export LANG=ru_RU.CP1251; wine /path/to/setup.exe If you don't do this, it might open the dialogs with garbage instead of Russian text. If stills showing up garbage: $ sudo locale-gen ru_RU.CP1251 Will fix it.
What does not
Game doesn't start due to problems while drawing the scenario. It shows "Memory Access Violation" and quit.
What was not tested
I had no time to test with D3D DLL's from Microsoft to see what happens. Just for the records, in 2009 I wasn't unable to run it, though. It did show up the "Memory Access Violation" dialog every time I tried. I still with the very same hardware (NVIDIA 8500GT) and newer blob drivers (version 195.34.26).
I'm including this game here because it's cool and I want to run it in Linux too. By the way, I'm not the retailer. Just bought this CD while I was in Russia.
