Additional Comments

- Requires directmusic. - Aali's custom driver ( is required to use resolutions higher than 640x480. - Wine CD-Rom drive must be letter d: or changed to the correct letter in the regedit of the wine drive that contains the game files, and has to be set pointing to the directory of the mounted disc image. - CD-Image MUST be mounted and wine drive MUST be pointing to it BEFORE running the game executables, or they wont start. - Hyne saved game editor works fine with wine program loader. I used version 1.6, latest can be found at
