Additional Comments

Managed to get this program to run flawlessly with minor slowdowns! I am not sure if this wine configuration is pertinent to functionality or not but it works for me Wine: 1.) Applications -> Windows Version: Windows Xp 2.) Libraries -> Existing Overrides: N/A 3.) Graphics -> Windows Settings: A.) [ ] Allow DirectX Apps to stop the mouse from leaving... B.) [x] Allow Window Manager to decorate windows C.) [x] Allow Window Manager to Control the windows D.) [ ] Emulate a virtual desktop 4.)Audio -> Driver Selection: OSS Driver Procedures: 1.) Buy & Download from via Download manager or web browser. 2.) Run the setup_arcanum.exe and install. 3.) Exit the installer, Don't use the option to launch the game, it will just crash at the menu and therefore is a waste of time. 4.) Open a terminal and switch to the directory holding your Arcanum.exe binary. Presumably it will be ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/ 5.) Enter the command(without quotes): "wine Arcanum.exe -no3d -doublebuffer" This will allow you to run the game
