What does not
What was not tested
I've installed DirectX 9 and added the overrides. I think that can be done by winetricks (http://wiki.winehq.org/winetricks), as well. Everything is running perfectly. Disabling "Reflections" to solve graphics issues may help. I had to use a no-CD patch to fix an inverted mouse issue, and because I couldn't get out of the car. I also renamed the "movies" directory to "_movies", because the game would crash otherwise.

The instructions below describe how to install The Godfather using Wine. They have been tested with Wine version 1.1.19. Installation of this game under Wine has improved since wine version 0.9.41, which was the previous version I had tested with. Basically, the installation works perfectly.
