What works

Installing (now works with switching disks, too). Playing the game.

What does not

Videos sometimes have black fragments. This is repeatable (e.g. the same fragments occur in the same videos) and most evident in the logos. In the intro film however this occurs only during the first second and I have yet got to see any others. It therefore doesn't even classify as nuisance.


What was not tested

Playing further on, finishing it.

Additional Comments

I had to confine the process to one core. In addition I had to override dsound. Not doing this results in many missing sound effects like voices outside cutscenes. There is however a big problem: overriding dsound only works in wine 1.3.24 or lower. With 1.3.25 (and probably its new sound architecture) the game won't start anymore with native dsound, only without (which results in above's sound problem). That means that for me it is only playable in 1.3.24 or lower.
