Additional Comments

In order to get the game running, a few tasks must be done. Naturally having wine installed will make the process easier :) Wine install Giants off the cd. Should not have any problems -Insert disk 2 when asked Apply v1.4 Patch from following web site Now, one might assume they can launch the game, but there is an issue with detecting the cd in your drive. To get around this, use wine to apply this patch To get the patch to apply, move the giants folder from ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/ To your desktop, because the patch program has trouble recognizing the hidden folder /.wine/ After patch is applied return Giants folder to its previous location. Now, I would suggest applying the giantshook patch from the same website as above, The game should work, I was able to play full resolution (1280x800) and all settings high, without ANY noticeable slow downs.
