Installer when using "/nogui"-option. Everything else.
What does not
Normal installer (freezes after some time).
What was not tested
Need to add directx9 via winetricks. Otherwise, intro videos don't work and the menu is garbage (sound plays fine besides).

If you are hit by bug #34052 (invisible character models), or flickering, set this key in the registry as a workaround (it happens on closed Nvidia driver, and to some on Mesa / Intel. It didn't happen to me with Mesa / radeonsi):
Another similar issue is bug #46553 when some textures turn black indoors. For now, install d3dx9_35 native override to work around that.
