Additional Comments

I tried to use native d3dx9_26.dll and xinput9_1_0.dll as suggested in other tests but I didn't notice any effect. For the game to run, the JadeEmpire.ini has got to be edited by changing the parameter of the option ‘NoLogos=’ from ‘0’ to ‘1’. Otherwise the game won't start. Character models flicker for a short moment but disappear afterwards. I also tried to use wine 1.1.33 but the results are exactly the same.
