What works

The game installs and runs. Be sure to patch it to 1.74. It is mostly playable.

What does not

The game doesn't work with it default settings, you will have to edit HitmanContracts.ini and change "DrawDll RenderD3D.dll" to "DrawDll RenderOpenGL.dll", then add following lines: "UseDirectInputMouse" and "UseDirectInputKeyboard". Now, there still are some problems as Hitman 3's OpenGL is much worse than Hitman 2's: Weather isn't working properly, you can't see your guns in first person view, BIK videos won't play, you can't see yourself when you die, etc. You might also have to nice(1) the game with $ nice -19 wine hitmancontracts.exe
