Pretty much everything.
Runs fluently without lags or peripheral problems.
BioSys.exe will only run if in wineconfig Windows Version 95 or 98 are selected for it.
Double-click BioSys.exe or type "wine BioSys.exe" (see HOWTO 2 below) and it will start.
WINE 1.4.1 also supports the right non-black font colours for in-game displays.
What does not
Two problems occur, but they have a solution (see HOWTO for solutions, see screenshots for examaples):
1. Videos will not play !
If started after Installation unchanged, the videos will sound and look very scrambled.
Solution in HOWTO.
2. Path Issue
If BioSys.exe is opened from Nautilus with a double click it works, but if you type "wine /path/to/application/BioSys.exe" BioSys will have a severe "Overlay Problem". All "removable objects", those which are normaly dislayed in front of the "background" graphic, will neither be visible nor "touchable". Also the "Bio/Sys 4"-GUI does not work. This is a "Present working directory" issue since the Readme.txt points out screenshots will be saved in the present working directory the program is aware of this variable which will differ from the Biosys folder if you type start it with "wine /path/to/application/BioSys.exe". I suspect BioSys.exe searches for some files in the present working directory which it cannot find there.
Solution in HOWTO.
What was not tested
Since it seems based on the same technology as Myst many technological correlations might be the same.
