Additional Comments

I basically downloaded the game through (, then I updated with the patch that is available on the same site. Then the game ran flawlessly on a clean prefix, no need to install vcrun2005 or anything (please correct me if I'm wrong). Please note that the "updater" worked but I couldn't read *any* text, only saw two buttons (continue and exit), it finished without issues and the game was indeed patched, so I didn't paid too much attention. (Maintainer note you likely need vcrun2005 installed.)

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.
