Additional Comments

It is a heck of a pain to close, you'll need to right click on the panel icon on the top to close it, any other way will not work. The messages lag a little. You'll also need to install the following things with winetricks: corefonts riched20 vb6run gecko ie6 and riched30. (Maybe some things are irrelevant, somehow I got it to work while installing them for another game to run). Besides that, it should be nearly fully usable.
