it will install if i go into the wine registry and add the registry entry manually. The title screen comes up.
What does not
Game freezes after title screen, no gameplay possible from this point on.
What was not tested
playing the game does not seem to be possible as it freezes before the new game screen.
i tried using litestep and it didn't help. The game will install and go to the title screen but then goes to a blank black screen and then freezes. I have tried waiting through the black screen and see if it works itself out but it just won't play from that point on. I loved this game on windows and I hope some day i can play it on wine. if anyone finds a solution that works please post it. I would love to be able to play truelove again.

This game works fine if you patch and build wine-1.3.7 with the "DIB Engine - Rebased on wine-1.3.7" patch found at Bug 421, in fact I played the whole game without issues.
In my case I built a custom wine 1.3.7 and launched this way:
WINEDIB=ON ~/wine-dib-1.3.7/bin/wine T_LOVE95.EXE
The game is fully functional, save/load work flawless, and not speed issues, there is only one but, after launching, game freezes for almost 7 minutes after the second splash screen, but after that time main menu is shown and the game is fully playable.
Couldn't get MIDI sound to work.
