Additional Comments

This game requires wine-mono. There is an error dialog about 80% into the install, but the install itself seems to have finished. Most probably it had issue with contacting some remote server for patches, but didn't succeed. 201006 directX native version of x3dx9_43.dll, x3dcompiler_43.dll, x3daudio1_7.dll, xactengine3_7.dll, xapofx1_5.dll, xaudio2_7.dll needs to be installed, and xaudio2_7.dll CLSID 5a508685-a254-4fba-9b82-9a24b00306af registry entry must be manually added to avoid crash. I never had winetricks succeed, so I always do overrides manually. This solution also helped me solve the no-sound problem of MagRunner: Dark Pulse.
