Additional Comments

The game does not require any changes in wine(cfg) so Platinum. To avoid the fullscreen issue (aka. game turns black after loading screen), you have to set fullscreen=0 in zoo.ini (some other interesting switches here as well). It's also possible that the copy protection causes problem requiring you to use some sort of nocd-patch.
