Demo installed without java
by Dan Kegel on Saturday January 10th 2009, 17:08
I saw a complaint that the game slowed down after ten minutes,
so I tried the demo,
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.
