Additional Comments

Set to windows 98 in winecfg to avoid crash. To avoid out of memory and crash, wine must be patched with wine-staging's unincorporated 0001-ntdll-Mimic-the-Windows-heap-management-and-delay-re.patch mentioned in bug#32235 comment 12. This patched wine may interfere with other games so I use a separate wine version for this game. I didn't give rating below Gold because the wine patch is no different to Windows Compability Kit whereby Windows changes their behavior to accomodate buggy/old applications.
