What works

- Installation

- Game start

- Sounds / Musics

What does not

- The game runs but the cursor is "glitched" while navigating into menus and you can't see it in game

- Some textures are invisible

- The game ask for the cd even if it is mounted

- The game will ask for the CD even if you have it mounted / configured in Wine (Installing a Fixed-EXE will most likely not fix this)

- If "Enable Virtual Desktop" is disabled and you run compiz / beryl or Compizfusion you can have some random crashes which need a xorg restart (CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE)

- Installing the patch 1.01 will make the game unable to start ("ADPCM Drivers not installed") i had this problem on windows xp too so i think it isn't a wine problem

- Changing the cursor texture in some way can maybe fix the invisible cursor while playing (don't ask me how as it is only an idea), what i know is that you can't see dynamic textures (like trains / animals, etc...)


What was not tested

- Playing

- I couldn't test videos as the game ask for the cd and i had no way to make it detect the CD
