Latest GOG release (1.17.3)
The first ten minutes or so of gameplay.
What does not
Program: C:\GOG Games\HOB\Hob.exe
Expression: "pGroup && pTech"
Install the "d3dcompiler_43" native component with winetricks. Depending on your version of winetricks, it may or may not be visible in the GUI, but running "winetricks d3dcompiler_43" on the command line should set it up.
What was not tested
Anything beyond the first ten minutes of gameplay
The "dark colours" problem can be resolved with the third-party dxvk extension:
For whatever reason, dxvk's version of the dxgi library uses the "bad" version of d3dcompiler_43.
With dxvk installed, the game works just as well as it does on Windows.
