What works

Same problem as previously posted... Restaurant Empire 2 will be released this week. Just trying to keep this game on the radar...  

* Installation and placement of desktop shortcut icon
* Starting the application
* Main Menu
* Starting a new game via the Main Menu (with possible mouse icon issues, see what doesn't work below)Mouse jumps all over the screen...


What does not

- There is no mouse cursor icon visible at the Main Menu, moving the mouse around I'm able by chance to highlight the options available and I highlighted the start game option and left clicked the mouse and it displayed a splash image with a loading message and loaded an interactive section with a dialogue box to the bottom left which you are intended to use the mouse to highlight and participate in conversation with an in-game character
- Game play, once in the initial in-game portion where two characters are conversing, the game generated mouse cursor icon, which is a pointer finger, hardly moves and often refuses to move with any mouse movement, since the game is loaded within a window you can often see your normal mouse cursor icon on your desktop appear and disappear with various mouse movements, by chance I was able to highlight a string of text in the in-game dialog box but only once, I exited the game manually by CTRL+ALT+F1 and logging in and typing "killall wineserver explorer.exe" without quotes and stopped an additional process called "RE.EXE" without quotes, I looked for errors in the terminal but all I found were errors related to sound/music
- No sound/music were present, I noticed errors in the terminal regarding sound/music
- Uninstall via wine uninstaller, fails with error message so I manually removed the installed files and directories and the desktop icon

Got a version from and 1.2-rc7. Still the same issue. But the mouse pointer works if an animation is running, e.g. with a sand clock mouse pointer.
