What works

playing missions, exploring the city

What does not

cutscene mpg movies don't show up

some issues the game also had on windows, not wine's fault:

  • plans sometimes not saving properly
  • graphical glitches like the floor not showing up sometimes
  • music apruptly changing without smooth transition
  • some NPCs looking hideous


mpg movies can be accessed by manually playing them outside of the game by opening CD-drive/Game/Movies

What was not tested

full playthrough (stopped before print shop & manor)
