Additional Comments

I had the same problems as described in: (important: unable to cache models!) I reached the same point as described in: (important: unable to cache models!) It is really sad, that this, in my opinion, great game still has problems to be run under a Linux-Kernel system. It is known that it were (and still is) a very buggy game (sadly!!!) but no other game made me waste so much time of my life (during that time I ran Windows on my PCs) than that!!! ;) Wine-Version (Snapshot):

The game requires X in 16 bit colour mode. It also requires a native copy of d3dxof.dll.

For wine 1.3.5:
16 bit no longer works, program will crash.
32 bit results in black main menu, with only music and mouse working.
