Game options screen
What does not
Under Wine the game rapidly uses ip ridiculously huge amounts of RAM, eventually all the RAM I have on my system.
I noticed in the console lots of errors saying "fixme:olepicture:OleLoadPictureEx"
I did some googling and found that OleLoadPictureEx is done by oleaut32.dll
I got a hold of that DLL and made Wine use it. It stops the memory leak, but the game freezes after a few clicks.
I'd appreciate if a few people could test this simulator out, to see if it's my PC or a Wine incompatibility. But everything I've tried, using wine 1.5.5 and 1.4, on Ubuntu 12.04 and 10.04, has failed.
What was not tested
The game loads, and you can use the games options to start the game. However, once you get past the options screen start the game propper, there appears to be a HUGE memory leak, and the game consumes 100% of my system RAM in a matter of under a minute. Sometimes you have to click a button before the memory leak starts.
