Additional Comments

The sound quality is not very good. There is crackling and a "deja-vu" effect. When caracters talk, they will sometimes repeat words over and over. I haven't found a way to fix this, but this problem almost goes away if you open winecfg, uncheck ALSA, check OSS, set hardware accelleration to Full, and then check the Driver Emulation checkbox. If you are using Fedora Core 6, use yum to install the alsa-oss package. After that, run the Mafia Setup and set the resolution to 1024x768. This will create less of a load on your system, and sound will be a bit better. If you used the Loki installer, just run mafia_setup to get the setup window. Kudos to the wine team once again, and keep up the good work!
