Additional Comments

The game requires winetricks dll overrides quartz and dsdmo directmusic in order for videos and sound effects to work. Gamepad input has problems, third party software like antimicro is required to use a gamepad properly. (In my case a dualshock 4 controller) In order to get the game to run at modern resolutions (like 1080p) size in disp.ini in the savedata folder must be edited manually. I recommend setting this file to read only so the game doesn't reset the resolution to 640x480 when it isn't closed properly (alt+f4 or a false crash). When running at widescreen resolutions the image will be stretched, in order to fix that a third party program is required, this field of view hack must be run together with the game, additional information available in the link. Winetricks override vbrun6 is required for this program to work. The game has a problem in which it fluctuates between 60 and 30 fps for no apparent reason, a fix is available on windows ( it fixes other problems including low resolution depth of field and shadows but it doesn't work on wine. Specs: CPU: AMD Phenom x3 8650 @2.3Ghz RAM: 8GB DDR2 VIDEO: AMD Radeon HD 6770 1GB using Mesa drivers. (It's an old game, it shouldn't have any problem running in any modern pc, even my old computer is overkill to run this game at decent resolutions.)
