HowTo / Notes

If the game only shows a black screen, try starting it without the CD first (this should only have to be done once).

Needs 32 bit prefix
by Alexander Nicolaysen Sørnes on Saturday June 15th 2024, 10:35
You have to run the game in a 32 bit wine prefix with the Windows version set to Windows 98. This can be achieved with winetricks:

Then, open winecfg and set the Windows version to Windows 98, then navigate to Graphics tab and select to always trap the cursor in full screen windows

For me enabling CD audio crashed the game
