nothing works - the game freezes during the splash screen. Game freezers both in DirectX and OpenGL mode of Ankh. (The rendering mode can be switched by editing Ankh's plugins.cfg.)

ÂÂÂÂUse wine-0.9.31 .. 0.9.43 to play this game with the default Direct3D9 renderer because of several regressions. These old versions should work except the item icons in the inventory may not be drawn correctly (bug #21354).
The maintainer would appreciate if you would find out whether one of these old veÂrsions works better than the others.
You can use much more recent versions of Wine (such as 1.1.34/36) if you change bin/release/plugins.cfg to use the GL renderer instead. The speech output issue (bug #21209) may still affect your machine.Â
