Retail CD release
What does not
Running the game. It hangs with a console saying: fixme:imm:ImmGetOpenStatus (0x15e2b0): semi-stub endlessly before the intro is displayed
What was not tested
Playing the game.
Several dlls are needed to make the game even try to start, but they are found easily on the internet.

For those having problems with the cd key and pidgen.dll, try using winetricks to install mfc42. It should at least get the install to start.
I also had to install MSXML3 to get it working.
