What works

Everything works actually amazingly. I had tested this game about 5 years ago and it did not work. Tested with the latest and it worked perfect. It actually loaded and I could play for hours. Tested video settings, saving, loading and well, about 40+ hours of game time.

 I also tested the update to 1.0.7.4 and even updated to the unofficial latest patch. I also applied the highres patch and it works perfect in my case for 1280x1024 and 1920x1080.

 This really changes my perspective on the game. 

What does not

Everything literally works.

Additional Comments

MBD - Asus Z87PRO CPU - Intel i7 4770k RAM - 32 GB RAM SSD - Samsung 840 PRO VID - Nvidia 440 GT (310.xx) OS Mode - Windows 7 Prefix works better on 32-Bit, so for 64-Bit users please do the following: rm -fr ~/.wine export WINEARCH=win32 export WINEPREFIX="/home/USER/.wine" winecfg If it helps, this is my complete winetrick component list that applies for most applications. It saves the time and trouble of any issues or needed DLLs. d3dx10 d3dx9_26 d3dx9_28 d3dx9_31 d3dx9_35 d3dx9_36 d3dx9_39 d3dx9_42 d3dx9_43 d3dx9 directx9 dotnet20sp1 dotnet20 dotnet30sp1 dotnet35 dotnet40 gdiplus gfw mfc40 mfc42 msxml3 msxml4 msxml6 physx quartz vb6run vcrun2003 vcrun2005 vcrun2008 vcrun2010 vcrun6sp6 vcrun6 wmp10 wsh56vb wsh57 xact_jun2010 xact xinput xna40 If you do get random graphic issues then open winetricks and simply change the settings of ddr=gdi and if that alone does not work, it is also recommended to orm=backbuffer In my case I only needed ddr=gdi but it happens one in every 10 times.
