Additional Comments

Using the White Label rerelease (comes prepatched to v1.4) 1) Copied the two cds onto two folders on hard drive 2) Copied the contents of one of the folders into the other, choosing to merge the folders when asked 3) Gave executable permissions to the merged folder and copied to wine C: directory 4) Went to http://howto.landure.fr/gnu-linux/install-directx-9-0c-on-linux-using-wine and followed the instructions in the section "DirectX installation" (copied and pasted the commands from that section into terminal) 5) Did the same with the section on installing Active Movie 6) Installed the game using setup.exe 7) To get sound to work in Configure Wine switched from Alsa to Esound (seems to work fine with this game for me) 8) To stop the mouse from lagging switched from Compiz to Metacity before starting with metacity --replace

HowTo / Notes

Some dll files that you will need

Here are some dll files that are needed to play the game, they're easily found via a popular search engine:

amstream.zip

IJL.zip

imgdll.dll.zip

zlib1.zip

Unzip these dll's into both ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system and ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32.

Everything should work fine.
