Additional Comments

All credits go to anton: 1. Install only the game, cancel VC Runtime, cancel .NET and cancel DirectX 2. winetricks winxp dotnet20 d3dx9 vcrun2005 vcrun2005sp1 3. Go to windows/system32 and remove: msvcr80.dll 4. Go to the game folder and remove lua51.dll and lua5.1.dll 5. Download http://code.google.com/p/luaforwindows/downloads/detail?name=LuaForWindows_v5.1.4-40.exe&can=2 and install it with wine. 6. Run wine regedit and create these keys/vales: (this should fix the Loading Flags problem.) In HKCU/Software/Wine/Direct3D/ DirectDrawRenderer to "opengl" OffscreenRenderingMode to "backbuffer" PixelShaderMode to "enabled" VideoMemorySize to the size of your video memory (e.g. "512") In HKCU/Software/Wine/DirectSound/ MaxShadowSize to "0" 7. wineboot 8. Run the game with: wine ./v2game.exe ________________________________________ Odd behavior: 1. At any first launch sounds and music work in main menu, but the game stays silent after loading. If I quit the game, start it again and begin a new campaign or load a saved game, sound and music work perfectly. That said, after each reboot I have to launch the game twice. 2. For some reason the game isn't satisfied with MSVCR80.dll installed via winetricks (complaining of an unimplemented function), so steps 3-5 are obligatory, and this shouldn't happen ^^' 3. The game crashes every time on quiting to desktop.
