You need to install mfc42.dll and set windows to windows98, the failure is playing the VOB file, ill purge gstreamer* and try again.

How to extract GOG .bin files
by Talos on Friday August 15th 2014, 19:50
You can extract directly the .BIN files without errors by using:

$ sudo apt-get install innoextract
$ innoextract setup_mygame.exe

The problem is: The game still not working due (in my opinion) of the DVD version (vob files patch).

If you use the win95 version of the main executable, downloaded at wcnews, the game runs but cannot find the avi files
