The game starts
Intro video doesn't work right, but does play. No sound.
Game plays fine (only with patch) up to a specific door, at which point it crashes reliably every time.
I guess I need to figure out what output I need to post as a bug. This game crashes at the same door in windows Vista though so I am unsure whether it's wine or just the game's general bugginess.
What does not
Immediately after exiting the sewer pipes when you have possess the mouse (after the little laval maze part) you come to a room with one gatch or whatever they're called. The crazy mutant people. You exit the mouse, possess him, and blow up a barrel in order to get out to an outside corridor. There are a bunch of mutants on one side and a bunch of police at the other end past a couple of little ramps. There is a laser wall to your left and the switch is to the right, where the police are. When you turn off the laser wall you can go passed it up some stairs and blow up a munitions box to break some glass that you jump through. There is one police officer and a flamer dispenser in this room and the switch to bring down an elevator outside.
When you leave this place and jump on the elevator outside it brings you to a big door. When you open this door the game crashes. It is impossible to get past this door. I tried to describe this section as best I could. It is the first outdoor part immediately after the possessing the mouse (First mouse? I can't remember if that's the only time you have to do it) This part strikes me as being about an eighth of the way into the game, if memory serves correctly (I was able to beat this a couple times when I owned a 98 system, back when I bought this game)
I am responsible for the torrent named Shiny's Messiah on mininova and made that using the original discs, since Shiny's gone under I'm sure it's safe for me to admit that and continue seeding.
What was not tested
Most of the gameplay. Music.
I have also tested this on 1.0.1, 1.1.12->1.1.19, and 1.1.21. It always crashes at that door.
