The games runs in Software rendering mode.
What does not
Initially there was terrible crackling in the sound. I had to disable the pulse audio component in my sound setup to get the sound to work normally.
I am unable to get the video to change from 640x480 software rendering mode. When I try to modify it the game crashes and then several processes relating to wine have to be shutdown before I can start it up.
What was not tested
Multiplayer game was not tested.
I am going to work on the video modes to see if I can get it to use openGL.
