Additional Comments

Having tried many things, I've found a way to get it to work. It requires the XACT sound dlls and will fail without them, so do "winetricks xact". I also recommend doing "winetricks d3dx9_42" since the game lags without it. The game did not work without WMVCore.DLL and WMASF.DLL , which installing windows media player 10 is supposed to provide, but did not work for me. I have acquired them from (which appear to provide the Windows 7 version of these files) and placed them in the executable's directory. The game also requires a codec of some sort installed. None of the codecs provided by winetricks worked for me, nor did any of the codec packs recommended on steam. I have however, found a lot of posts in chinese describing the same symptoms I was having and suggesting a codec pack which can be obtained here: Don't worry, the installer is in english. After that I set my windows version to 7 and created a virtual desktop the size of my resolution (that step is probably optional). After that the game worked, though, whenever the game tries to play a video, it is "ejected" into separate window to play it in. I had to click in the main window to skip them. It seems the game tries to play a video as the main menu's background, so clicking the main window nets you with a black background. As I've mentioned, I couldn't get sound to work in videos. So to summarize, the steps I have taken are: 1. winetricks xact d3dx9_42 2. download WMVCore.DLL and WMASF.DLL from (or your Win7 installation) and place them in the same directory as the executable 3. download and install the codec pack from 4. set windows version to 7 and activated virtual desktop with same size as actual desktop 5. started playing
