Additional Comments

New WINEPREFIX, install, run, enjoy. NO winetricks etc. required. It's important to NOT set a virtual desktop via winecfg, otherwise it'll start & run, but nothing will be displayed but the virtual-desktop-background. On installation there were displayed two errors, but those had no effect on the game (I guess it was from the VC++2013 that ships with it), just pressed "ok". Frame-rate was dismal until I set it to run fullscreen, then it became suddenly playable. AMD FX-8350, NVidia GTX770, @2048x1152, all graphics settings at medium. Note: tabbing back to the desktop, or switching X-servers (I run an extra X-server for games) will cause the game to display nothing any more, game-restart required. There are some *in-game* gotchas, f'rex it wasn't immediately clear (to me) that you need to press AND HOLD DOWN mouse buttons to trigger an action (say, change a setting in the in-game options). Also it takes about a minute or two until the "press E" screen is displayed, at first I thought the game didn't work, so you might need a bit of patience.
