Demo installed without java

I saw a complaint that the game slowed down after ten minutes,
forum.winehq.org/viewtopic.php?p=17851 so I tried the demo,
www.gamershell.com/download_15877.shtml It failed to do a graphical install, but told me that
I could do a console install by adding -console on the
end of the commandline. That worked, and the demo
seemed to install and run fine with the latest wine from git
(1.1.12, more or less).
I didn't have the patience to try to reproduce the slowness,
hoping he gives me an easy recipe to follow.
