Additional Comments

Before installation I set the Windows version to "Windows 95". Installation itself worked without flaws. To enjoy the video clips you should install the indeo 5 video codec via Winetricks -> "iv50". You can also install it from the game CD, either directly after the installation when asked or with the INDEO5.exe on the game CD. Now you have to get rid of two problems: 1. The game tells you that you should remove a so called "SGL.dll" in your WINDOWS and WINDOWS/SYSTEM folder. There is no file with this name. Even in software mode the same error message appeared. On the nGlide site there is a patch: This archive contains the "SGL.dll", extract this file into your installation folder. 2. The game tells you about a missing CD. You have to manually mount the CD drive in Wine. When both issues are fixed, the game will start. Testing was done using a clean Wine 32-Bit prefix, Debian 8 64-Bit and the Nvidia proprietary driver 340.96. No additional libraries were added.
