with workarounds and Windows-native patches:
What does not
What was not tested
Extended game play beyond the very beginnings of starting a world.
Since the game is 20 years old, it technically works (or rather, doesn't work) as well as it does on Windows. However, I was able to run all the Windows patches listed for the game's many understandable issues running in 2019, and once used, the game appears to work well. Details below.
I was unable to get anything to work with any incarnation of the installation instructions provided. I'm somewhat new to the wine community, so I'm not sure what all matters or not. But due to the level of desperation I faced, I'd be remiss to not include everything.
WINEARCH=win32 wineboot -u
Download user-made Windows 7 patch to address known windows issues with the game, and install using the README. For my patch, the steps included:
cd <game executable directory>
