What works

Application installs, executes.

What does not

Application is extremely unstable and crashes quickly with DSOUND errors (and possibly others currently masked by DSOUND). Can quickly accelerate the failure by clicking on the help screen and quickly scrolling through the NEXT and PREVIOUS arrows.

In some cases after the crash (or a kill -9 of all the Zoombini, Explorer, and Wine processes), the application won't execute at all on subsequent attempts. It opens a window, flashes for an instant, then shuts down with an error.


What was not tested

Load, Save, anything beyond the first screen.

Additional Comments

Great game for kids. If I could get this running in Wine, I could abandon Windows completely (have to run it in VMWare, as it is). Tested this in 0.9.22 (standard with Ubuntu 6.10), then upgraded to .34 hoping for improvement. Alas, no. Tried switching to Win98 config instead of Win2K, but still had the same problems.
