Additional Comments

Prior to install, the winetricks fixes 'wmp9' and 'dxvk' were applied. In winecfg, wine was confgured to use a virtual desktop of 800x600, with the game's display configuration set equal to the resolution that was set in winecfg. x11 (via XQuartz) was also used, via the 'macdriver=x11' winetricks fix.

The cutscene issue appears to be a regression as wine versions 1.4.x up to 1.8.x will correctly play them without any issues. 

as this is a problem that a regular person cannot fix, I'm marking it as 'silver'. Technically speaking though, this should only apply to macOS's build as the error relates to QuickTime apparently being unable to play the file type (mpg), which is a bug of itself as Mojave can play .mpg files in QuickTime without issue.
