The game installs ok.
What does not
When I try to run it with "wine THIEFII.EXE" I get a popup saying "Direct X version 7 or higher is not installed".
What was not tested
Didn't know how to go at it but I did NOT try to install DirectX since I thought this was the wrong way to approach the problem. Did not try other versions of wine.
Any help highly appreciated.

you MUST install "iv5play.exe" from the game disc
if you want to view the cinematics then you will also need a native quartz.dll
