What works

Everything seems to work, but I admit I haven't fully tested it all yet. It installs and runs properly, but I thought I heard some glitchy vocals, but the other sounds seemed good. I only played a startup game, but it ran well. Made me very happy. Now that I got it running, I'll test more at a later date.

What does not

One big problem, the mouse gets locked when you try to scroll the in-game world map via the edge of the screen. The only way I got it unstuck is by switching to another window to unlock the 'real pointer' then returning to the game. But I'm only able to do this in Wine's virtual desktop mode. Not in full-screen mode, unless you have multiple monitors (Yay!)

 I am thinking a temporary fix is to up the scroll delay in-game to some really high value as to effectively disable the world scrolling.

Additional Comments

I installed directx9 & corefonts to get it to run. I would have given it a higher rating but I think the scrolling issue is a big problem. I tested many versions of wine and I found 1.5 to run the best. Though I haven't tested all the versions, but 1.5.15 & 1.5.13 work well.
