What works

What does not

The mouse pointer remains frozen on the screen once the game starts, but this is a minor (if any) distraction.


Also,  when you exit the game, it gives an error box, but this does not affect the game itself.

Additional Comments

A couple things need to be done before the game can run reasonably: First, remove the 'video' directory from the game directory. Second, download this patch ( and install it into the game directory. Third, go to 'configure wine', or 'winecfg' (they are the same thing). Go to 'applications' tab, and add the executable game file (for me, this was dmcr.exe). Where it says 'windows version', select 'windows xp'. Fourth, go to the 'library' tab. Under 'new override for library' type in 'ddraw' and click 'add'. Under 'existing overrides', click on 'ddraw', and click 'edit'. Select the option for 'native then builtin'. Save changes and exit winecfg. Sorry for the lengthy explanation, but it took me hours to figure all of this stuff out, and I thought I would save the next person some time.
