What works

Loads files properly, display and navigations options all work.

What does not

Occasional DLL error message causes it to stop loading images, very rarely. 

Full screen mode only works properly if the window is first maximized before entering full screen mode (which is done by unchecking windowed mode).  "Windowed mode" usually remains checked when in full screen mode, and is sometimes unchecked when actually in windowed mode.  I suspect the windowed mode error is a bug in the program rather than Wine.


What was not tested

Loading files by passing them as command line option.

Additional Comments

In my experience, program had a similar crash rate in windows as it does through Wine. I would rate this Platinum if it wasn't for the minor difference in how you have to enter full screen mode.

HowTo / Notes


When I initially installed it and tried to open files it said that it could not find the dlls necessary to access zip&rar archives (although they were clearly in the folder). I later on installed sidenet, and fiddled around with winecfg (no changing of the stuff in the Libraries tab) such as assigning drives and such. When I tried again, everything worked perfectly, (I also have wine set as win98).
