Additional Comments

The game ran without problems on a wine desktop, with software rendering. 3D rendering also worked for me, but it was laggy. The game sometimes forgets a few settings, like volumes and turn speed, you have to re-set these. It doesn't forgets keybindings. I had to "export LIBGL_DRIVERS_PATH=/usr/lib32/dri" to run the game.
