Maybe not as smooth as windows but it is good enough!
What does not
didn't finish the game but it seems everything should work
What was not tested
The whole game(is that even possible?)
This game should work with both 64 and 32 architecture of wine! Install last version of wine: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install wine1.5 Tweaks for runing the game: with winetricks i have installed these packages: 1-all d3dx9* 2-vcrun2010 and vcrun2008 3-vcrun6(without this pack setup.exe does not start) Enable Gamepad: I think this is a must have for this game so with synaptic or your software manager install "xserver-xorg-input-joystick" now you can use game-pad too! But there is one problem though the cursor moves as you move joystick use this to disable it: sudo gedit /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-joystick.conf add these lines: Option "DebugLevel" "0" Option "StartKeysEnabled" "false" Option "StartMouseEnabled" "false" now logout and log in again and everything should! That's it enjoy this fantastic RPG!
