Hardware tested

Graphics:

Additional Comments

Do not use a native dsound override. It breaks the audio.

wine 1.6 is causing access violations with this game.
this is a global problem that many games have since 1.6.

the game's crash log :
"Access Violation in module ole32.dll at 0073:68664b66."
"Read from location 00000007 caused an access violation."
