Additional Comments

Rating gold, as the game works flawlessly, but needs third party software. Installed steam and the game in a fresh new wineprefix : WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=-pathtonewprefix- winecfg To get sound effect working: WINEPREFIX=-pathtonewprefix- ./winetricks amstream WINEPREFIX=-pathtonewprefix- ./winetricks quartz WINEPREFIX=-pathtonewprefix- wine regsvr32 "c:\windows\system32\amstream.dll" To get ingame video working I had to install Active Movie for Internet explorer (wich is not shipped with the game, I had to find this component with a search engine): WINEPREFIX=-pathtonewprefix- wine Amov4ie.exe To get voices working : WINEPREFIX=-pathtonewprefix- ./winetricks devenum WINEPREFIX=-pathtonewprefix- ./winetricks wmp9 Here's a short video for reference :
