What works

(GOG version) Everything works with stock Wine 64-bit prefix without any additional fix or library.

What does not

Minor bugs detailed below.


Minor bugs (don't affect functionality):

1) Game crashes on exit (you just have to press OK to a message five times and it closes, you don't need to kill it)

2) Gamma brightness get adjusted in menus and don't go back to normal after you close the game. Use terminal command xgamma -gamma 1.0 to restore it

To fix bugs 1 & 2 listed above, use DxWnd, it's a D3D wrapper and launcher for old games, it comes with a POD profile under the "Exports" directory. Enable "Expert Mode" to gain access to the Libs tab, then check the option "Disable Setting Gamma Ramp". To solve crash on exit, go to the "Tweaks" tab and check the options "Fix Global Unlock", "Fix FreeLibrary", "Fix LoadLibrary Error", "Fix AdjustWindowRect".
