What works

The game installs fine with the GoG installer now

What does not

The game crashes instantly without error in out of the box Wine.  Using winetricks to install vcrun2008 gets it a little farther (this is installed in the steam version), however for me that leads to a black screen.  Likely some sort of wintericks direct3d commands could work here, however I couldn't replicate the success of the steam version (which works for me if I add the raw patch)
