Retail CD release
Installing and starting (after patching the game with the newest patches). Intro movie.
What does not
In the the main menu-screen (where a fight between two characters is going on in the background:
- Textures missing on the characters, items in main menu missing completely. Random flickering lines in different colours.
My computer (TimelineX 3820T has an Intel IGP and a Radeon HD5650). I've tried both the Intel driver, the Radeon driver and the FGLRX/Catalyst-driver with roughly the same results. The FGLRX driver works best, showing menu items and textures but the flickering of the different colours and lines is terrible, epileptic!

If the setup program asks for 'setup.exe', kill it, and then run 'killall -9 IKernel.exe'
If the game does not allow you to choose a resolution higher than 1024x768, run regedit and add the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct3D, then add the string value VideoMemorySize and set it to the amount of video memory you have
