Game will be randomly crashed on multicore systems. This is bug of Dark Engine (see bug #9844 for more info).
Launch game via taskset program:
taskset -c 1 wine Shock.exe
The game's installer refuses to install if it detects Windows 2k or later. To work around this, you have two options. First, you can run winecfg and set the Windows version to Windows 98, and then run setup.exe from the CD as normal. Alternatively, you can open a terminal, navigate to the CD drive, and run the installer this way: wine "setup.exe" -lgntforce
Do a full install (Intel codec too), but do not install Direct X.
Install SS2 Tool
SS2 Tool should be the first thing you do after installing the game. It replaces the official patch, and also includes a few other critical bugfixes needed to get System Shock 2 working on modern systems. It also removes the copy protection.For better looking graphics:
