Additional Comments

I had this working before the 0.9.38 update, after the update it failed. I did a complete wipe of my Wine install and started fresh with a new 0.9.38 install and made two registry modifications: DirectDrawRenderer set to opengl VideoMemorySize set to my card's actual memory size (256) The game installed without issue and launches when run from the game CDs autorun.exe (launching from the local exe produced menus with missing text). "Enable Hardware Mouse" had to be disabled in the configuration menu to get cursor to function correctly. There are still occasionally pointer trails, but there is a usable mouse cursor. Attempting to use the game's autoupdate feature first failed to even launch, but was fixed with a DLL override of mfc42.dll. Once the autoupdater launched, it failed to connect to the update server, but that is likely a configuration issue on my end.
