Additional Comments

There are several modifications that I made to get this working. First I installed a 32-bit version of wine in a seperate Wine prefix using winetricks. Then I installed 3rd party DLLs including corefonts, DirectX 9 and .NET. I installed SE5 using Steam then, in the SE5 directory, I modified the data/settings.txt file to disable music and the DirectX 10 Fix. When running the game make sure all settings are set to Low and that you are using 32 bit color. 3D Device should be set to Wine D3D7 T&L HAL and Display Driver should be DirectDraw HAL. Video Memory Usage should be set to Safe.
