What does not
Main screen mostly blacked out. Only a badly-tracking mouse cursor is visible. Top menu intermittently displays. Page faults if anything is clicked other than Quit.
It's known to require 640x480x16 but fglrx (and many other drivers) don't support 16-bit depths or less. I tested it using both Xephyr and VNC following the 256 color workaround. The mouse cursor tracked better in Xephyr. Neither of these support 3D acceleration so that may be the source of the problem.
What was not tested
Tested with Radeon HD 7340 (fglrx 2:13.350.1-0ubuntu2). Game version 1.2 via update. The game will exit immediately unless started using winefile or the Start Menu *.lnk file. The game asset configuration file (inquis.zix) always maps the CDs to S: and T: drives. It's possible to map these drives to directories with winecfg but the paths still need to be fixed: 0 s:\ 'Zork Grand Inquisitor Disk 1 1 t:\ 'Zork Grand Inquisitor Disk 2 ---------------------------- After dumping the contents of the CDs to the S: and T: target directories, the installer can be started from S: using winefile.

Run winecfg and set the following values:
Applications / Windows version: Windows XP
Graphics / Emulate a virtual desktop: 640x480
(required, in 0.9.24 game doesn't start)
(in 0.9.35 transition videos don't play without virtual desktop)
Audio / OSS Driver
(Important! ALSA isn't functional in Wine 0.9.24 for this game)
(Edit: wine 0.9.35 ALSA works as usual)
