Additional Comments

Last time this game worked was way back with 0.9.8 or maybe 0.9.10 version. Also then I used DCOM98 with the game. Then the game ran almost perfectly. Only thing missing then was game music. Sound effects were working though. I've tried several wine versions since hoping that the game would run without extra tweaking or additional tools but got no luck. I've tested that the game doesnt work with at least wine versions 0.9.13 to the latest 0.9.21 version. In winecfg I used default settings except for os which I tried both 2000 and 98 versions. Also I setup sound to OSS emulation as per the winedebug output suggested so.
