What works

Game seems to start, smoething that looks like a failed attempt at displaying the title screen shows. Mouse seems to work, Alt+F4 to quit works.

What does not

Display is completely broken. Everything is squeezed into the bottom-right triangular half of the screen, and the squeeze is "perspective correct" so to say. It looks like a projective transformation of the original screen rectangle into a degenerate quadrilateral with left edge collapsed at the bottom left corner. That hints strongly at a borked projection matrix somewhere.

Workarounds

What was not tested

Actual gameplay, since display is too broken.

Additional Comments

(I am not sure what the Runs? question means. The program technically launches and works, but the display is so broken it cannot be used. How does this qualify wrt. "Runs?")

HowTo / Notes

Additional info and howtos
Windowed Mode

Playing in windowed mode is possible by using a virtual Wine desktop. Just set it in winecfg under Graphics tab. The desktop can be of any size.

The built-in solution of this game doesn't usually work, and the virtual desktop solution is also much more stable.

NoCD

Built-in functionality can be used to play without a CD. Just download this file and put it in the folder you installed your game in. Note that the fan patch provides a different solution for this which is enabled by default.

Unofficial patches

There is an unofficial patch fixing many issues and adding additional functionality. The link for it is under available in the fanpatch version in AppDB.

Hardware vs. software rendering

Hardware rendering works in general better under Wine, however netbooks (or similarly weak machines) have trouble coping with it - the game will work, but you might experience lower performance at times. Recent Wine versions seem to work well with both however.
