Additional Comments

Requires the d3dx9 libraries installed to work correctly, or else the game will crash every few minutes. This does not require opengl to work There's a lot of small bugs that is probably from the game itself (e.g. wonky graphics) Run on core i3 with the integrated graphics. Checked and Paraphrased from another poster (Sarai B.): -The setup.exe file in the top directory of the cd was broken for me. The workaround is to go directly to the setup2.exe file in the setup directory and execute that instead. -Even if you do the full install the cd must be in the drive and accessible by wine to play it (probably because not all data is copied?), so if you haven't already, make a symlink to that drive: ln -s /media/cd/ ~/.wine/dosdevices/d: , replacing /media/cd/ with the mountpoint of your cdrom drive (i.e. /mnt/cdrom etc). If you don't do this, you will get an error trying to run it.
