Everything tested, but with a few graphical glitches (blue textures on Guybrush's face etc)
What does not
Starting the game from Wine menu, ie the link to Monkey.exe in install directory (Monkey.exe shows the dialog where you can start the game, uninstall, change settings etc). This results in the desktop resolution changing to 640x480, the EFMI title shows in taskbar but no window shows. I had to terminate the process and manually revert the resolution.
Instead, start Monkey4.exe in install directory.
What was not tested
Changing CDs later in the game.
Since I have the original game on CD I didn't want to go through the trouble of making iso files and mounting them during install. I'm not afraid of typing a few rows of text in the terminal, so this is what I did: 1. Insert first CD, it'll be mounted as /media/MONKEY4_CD1 2. Start Wine configuration and add this path as D: and set it as CD-ROM under the advanced settings 3. Start the install program and wait until it wants to change CD 4. Enter "wine eject" in a terminal to make it open the tray 5. Change CD and it'll be mounted as /media/MONKEY4_CD2 6. Make a symlink from this location to MONKEY4_CD1 in /media (sudo ln -s /media/MONKEY4_CD2 /media/MONKEY4_CD1) * Hit Yes in the install program to continue. When asked to change back to CD1, remove symlink (sudo rm /media/MONKEY4_CD1) and change CD ("wine eject" needed again). I also had to make some changes in the registry to get the game to run. I'm not sure this is nescessary when following the above, I think I started the install and then did step 2. The reason for editing the registry is that the path to the CD-ROM is identified as Z:\media\MONKEY4_CD1, and I changed this to D:. This is also mentioned in one of the other test reports. Choose Browse C: Drive in the Wine menu, navigate to windows directory and start regedit.exe. Then navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\LucasArts Entertainment Company LLC\Monkey4\Retail and change the keys Analyze Path, CD Path, Source Dir and Source Path. I suspect that you have to change D: in Wine configuration once the CD change occurs, to point to /media/MONKEY4_CD2.
