What works

the game is fully playable provided the required native components are installed.

  • installation (I opted to *not* install DotNetFX35 during the setup) 
  • playing the game @1440x900 resolution
  • audio using ALSA with emulation mode
  • mouse input
  • rendering, visuals are okay

What does not

  • no audio unless you set ALSA to 'emulation' and the sample rate to 44.1 kHz


What was not tested

  • completing the game 
  • installing DotNetFX35 which comes bundled with the game (I preferred the winetricks method)

Hardware tested

  • Driver:

Additional Comments

The game requires the following components: - Xact audio libraries and the XNA framework (the installer takes care of them) - DotNet Framework 3.5: you will need the latest winetricks-alpha for that: You can ignore the error message during the installation for now. I had to set Alsa to 'emulation' mode and the sample rate to 44100 Hz to get sounds. The game is fully playable after DotNetfx35 is installed. Nvidia GeForce 250 GTS / driver 260.19.36
