Additional Comments

Just finished the game. Works good, almost "out of the box". All you need to do is set Windows version to Windows 7. Crashed few times, have few graphical bugs, sound is cracking sometimes in videos (standard pulseaudio feature), but nothing that can annoying too hard or make it unplayable :) Speed ranges from 20 to 80 fps ingame on my system, at an average 40 fps. PC Configuration: i7-3770K@4.4 Ghz, 16 Gb@2133Mhz, GeForce GTX 970 4 Gb, Linux Mint 17.3 Cinnamon 64-bit, kernel 4.2.0-18-generic, NVIDIA Driver Version: 352.63, wine-staging-1.8-rc1 with CSMT enabled.
