Type or die!
Playing the game in all modes and with no crashes. High scores are saved.
What does not
The unace program does not run, and the wav decompressor is a bat, but the game can be installed by manually unaceing the data files and manually running the single command in the bat file. The game crashes when any sound system is selected in winecfg, and if none is selected then there is predictably no sound. Also the game seems a little unduly sluggish.

PART 1: Getting the game to work(but no sound):
Â You can also unpack sound files with command `wine mythxpak.exe myth.pak`
but at least on my system, having sounds in place causes the game to hang up after pressing a single button. You have to patch wine to get sound to work.
PART 2: Getting sound to work:
As of wine version 1.1.27 it is still necessary to apply a patch to source code and recompile. Big thanks to TorbjÃ¶rn SÃ¶derstedt for the fix (see BUG 18823).
Below are instructions specific to Ubuntu, but they should be easily adaptable to any Debian derivative.
If wine version contained in your repositories is outdated, before proceding, you should consider updating your sources (see http://www.winehq.org/download/deb for more details). Do it with the following:
- Add the repo (replace `[YOUVERSION]` with `hardy` or `intrepid` or `jaunty`): sudo wget http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/sources.list.d/[YOURVERSION].list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/winehq.list
- Add repo's gpg key: wget -q http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/387EE263.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -
- Resynchronize index files: sudo apt-get update
If the game hangs after pressing a single button and you have `sounds` directory then you can:
