Additional Comments

I tested this on a nVidia 7900GS AGP with the 8774 drivers.

From a terminal, run wineprefixcreate, this initialises the registry.

Then run regedit, and browse to HKCU\Software\Wine\Direct3d\ then create a new key called "UseGLSL" and set it to "enabled".

Also browse to HKCU\Software\Wine\Direct3D\ and create a new key called "VideoMemorySize" and set it to your total video memory plus AGP aperture size, in units of megabytes.

HowTo / Notes


A bug present (8128) renders the game virtually useless due to not being able to load or save the game properly. Keep this in mind if you intend to play as you won't be able to get very far or at least continue.

Bug 8128 is NOT a Wine bug. Please install an official patch.
