Additional Comments

Had to follow these instructions posted under getting the non-free full game 1.0x to work: 1. Put native dinput8.dll and d3dx9_36.dll to your game or system32 folder. Run winecfg and change dinput8 to native 2. Apply 1.08 patch(if you don't want to enjoy all the game bugs...) 3. Sound works if you set Audio to OSS in Winecfg (ALSA won't work) 4. Change HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct3D\OffscreenRenderingMode to "fbo" to get better fps and Pixel Doubling/Soft Shadows working Running on: AMD Athlon X2 Dual Core 64bit Integrated ATI Xr1250 graphics 2Gb DDR2
