What works

Game launches, and runs fine

What does not

Under wine 1.4 I saw regular crashes.  These happen rarely enough that it didn't hamper my game play.  (I die a lot so losing a game every so often doesn't really matter much.) 


What was not tested

Additional Comments

Note after upgrading my laptop to wine 1.5 the game appears to work flawlessly.

HowTo / Notes

installing vcrun2005

You will need to install Visual C++ Libraries 2005 to run  this game.   The easiest way to do this is to type "winetricks vcrun2005" on the command line.  If the command fails or winetricks is not found see the below link to download, and run the latest wintricks.

Note that many test reports don't report this requirement.  I suspect many testers have already installed the required library.
