What works

Save, Load, gameplay, videos, sound.  I played the first three levels.

What does not

In the game, turn off fog and water effects and set texture quality low.  Otherwise the fog will be too thick, and the screen will sometimes blank out.

On my widescreen the bottom is cut off, so I set wine to windowed.  The patch listed below may also work - I didn't try it.

Changing resolution in the game seems to crash it - I played at the default.

I have the official patch installed, but it seems to make no difference.

Additional Comments

I wouldn't have posted the previous 'garbage' if I'd known 1.1.24 was coming out the next day!
