Additional Comments

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.


  1. Setup a clean 32-bit WINEPREFIX:

    WINEARCH=win32 wineboot -u

  2. Install version 1.0 (from mounted iso - Autorun.exe)
  3. Install version 2.0 patch
  4. 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:

    • Replacing files in the installation directory
    • Importing a .reg file into regedit (I used winetricks)


cd <game executable directory>
wine tp.exe
