Selected Test Results

What works

- Solo Game

- Copy protection without having to use a no-cd !

- Games video glitches that make the game unplayable on Cedega works with Wine !

- Fullscreen mode ( -fullscreen )

- Patching to 1.0.7.4

- Smooth speed using : "wine Arcanum.exe -no3d -doublebuffer"

- Game tweaks using rules/ or custom rules files works too

What does not

- Game install !

You have to install the game on windows, or with cedega, and then copy the folder in your wine "c:" drive and launch from there. Pretty annoying but i suggest to make a copy of the installed game once you installed it elsewhere (seems copying files is sufficent, no registry things to tweak)

Rated Silver only due to this issue. (else, game play is gold, didn't encountered any problem)

It's a pain that installer doesn't work. Apart from that it's ok.
