What works

Using Vanilla Wine or Wine Staging it will crash after the intro videos (I tested on two different machines!).

It requires patched Wine to run this game (see workarounds).

The GOG Video Utility can adjust the video resolution of ddraw.dll wrapper, where actually it will upscales the original 640*480 game resolution to the selected option. (Up to 1920*1080 or more)


What does not

The game itself.

Workarounds

So far, the easiest way to run this game is to install Lutris and select the GOG version from list.

 It will create the wineprefix, install the patched Wine 4.3, set the ddraw override, and the game itself.

Once settled, the game runs without issues, except the partially garbled intro menu, what at least it is possible to select the options.


Adventurous users can replace the GOG's ddraw wrapper by dgVoodoo2 (stable 2.55 version) and DXVK 1.0, in order to enable better screen upscaling (with anisotropy filtering)  without get more frame-rate than other options (the game's engine don't delivers more than 20 fps). After all, it's emulating a DirectX 3 game over a  DirectX 11 wrapper, and overlap with a DX11 to Vulkan library translator.


What was not tested

Finishing the game.

Additional Comments

Until further developments, it's better to follow the Lutris default settings.
