What works

installing, playing, configuring

audio, video @ wonderful framerate, fullscreen, windowed, etc etc.

 short: everything you could care about.

What does not

copyprotection (?),

the desktop appears for half a second if you press the esc key to get to the menu (it seems to be because it switches the resolution - problem seems to occur in windows, too?), but thats not really a problem 


What was not tested


just reached lvl 5 by now, anything after that isnt "tested" yet

i also didnt test the copyprotection properly, just tried it once (didnt work, but it may be the configuration) and used a crack after that

Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

its almost platinum, but im not sure because of the copyprotection issue. it works without the 1.2 patch, too.

HowTo / Notes


It is recommend to use Wine 1.8  

1. To enable movie playing, you need to install additional libraries: 

   $ winetricks amstream quartz dsound

2. Pressing the ESC button during play to get the menu the game is not shown full screen anymore. To fix that I changed a few settings in the Wine configuration (tab Graphics)
- Enabled:
    Automatically capture the mouse in full-screen windows
    Allow the window manager to decorate the windows
- Disabled:
    Allow the window manager to control the windows 

Emulate a virtual desktop (is default)
