The game works with sound (I managed to start the game, create the character and begin the first level), after installing these components / native overrides:
d3dx9 devenum quartz wmp9 xact
Intro videos however fail out of the box, because they use vc1 video codec which is not properly supported. The workaround is to replace videos with ones which use wmv2 video codec instead of vc1.
There are two ways to do it. Either straight re-encode the videos yourself, or use ones supplied with Wine wrapped Linux release of the game, which GOG now provides. There developers already re-encoded videos for you.
To re-encode them yourself, you can do this:
for src in *.wmv; do ffmpeg -i $src -q:a 0 -q:v 0 -vcodec wmv2 -acodec wmav2 ../converted/$src; done
What does not
Nothing so far.
What was not tested
Didn't finish the game yet.
Giving the gold rating since the game works well after several tweaks and overrides.
