Installation, general game play, and menu screens all work fine. The configuration program (CTConfig.EXE) works great.
What does not
In game sound will play for a second or two and then skip to the next audio track. The workaround is to check "Disable background music" in the Crazy Taxi configuration program. Other game sounds will still work fine.
On exit, Crazy Taxi will leave your desktop in the resolution the game runs at (It doesn't restore the resolution). You can work around this by running Crazy Taxi in a Virtual Desktop (a configurable option in winecfg). Alternatively, you can create a shell script to launch the game and then run "xrandr -s 0" (or some other utility) after the game exits.
What was not tested
I didn't test the uninstaller. I haven't tried replacing any built in Wine libraries with actual Windows binaries.
To be honest, I'm not sure if the display resolution restoration worked correctly in Windows. I seem to remember some games from that time period would not restore the resolution correctly. I don't remember if this game was one of them. It's been some time since I used Windows. (This game is a favorite of my niece.)
