Everything perfectly including initial game play (in full screen), saving/loading, menu, playing game without CD, German characters (umlauts). Game is running fluently. I tested the German Version with patch 1.05 (1.05.1532).
What does not
Game in Wine window / desktop mode. Rather play in full screen.
What was not tested
I compiled Wine (0.9.43) to include the patch because of the mouse cursor bug. Rated garbage because for normal users it is impossible to compile wine and include a patch

Note: You do not need a proprietary 3d video card driver (no ati nor nvidia) to play this game. A 2d capable driver is sufficient due to the old graphics ;-)
1. Install game with wine as you would do in windows
2. Patch the game to version 1.05 (regular patch, nocd crack is not needed)
3. Run the game and have fun :-)
Known issues: The mouse cursor does not support moving cursors due to missing ani cursor support in Wine. But you probably won't notice that in the game.
