Additional Comments

To install, as suggested in previous version report: - copy the content of both CDs to a folder on the harddrive - start the installation via command line from harddrive: WINEPREFIX=~/path/to/my/.prefix wine /path/to/setup/Setup.exe Download and install the official 1.0.2 patch and insert CD2 into the CD-Rom drive to play. For some strange reason the numeric keypad of the Logitec diNovo keyboard dos not work properly - using any other keyboard there are no problems. PC used: Lenovo T410 with Quadro NVS3100M 512Mb and 8Gb Memory + external keyboard
