The installer, which is created by Wise, works flawless, no problems what-so-ever. No special configuration was needed, simply mount CD 1, and execute wine /cdrom/setup.exe Answer the typical questions and watch it install. On first start I was prompted for the initial video configuration, as in MS Windows. Once configured, the game itself loaded, taking no longer than it does in Windows. Game menu appears within seconds. Able to use every menu entry. Able to start a new game.
What does not
Sound was slow and skipped.
What was not tested
The graphics I'm not rating because, although I have an ATI 9800 Pro, it is currently dying and will not work in 3D accelaration mode.
A great game, with a steep learning curve. You can buy the Gold edition rather cheap. The only disappointment for me is my video card. I hope to rectify this and test this better. I have the feeling this game can attain at least a Silver rating.
