What works

Version: 1.94 

Nothing. Could not start the game. However, in version 1.02, I was able to start it.

What does not

Starting the application. When I do start the application I get the following errors:

What was not tested

The game itself was unable to start, and so I was unable to test it further.

I did not use any additional DLLs in my wine installation.

Additional Comments

The patch program to bring the version I had previously (1.02) worked perfectly. However, I can no longer run it.
