Additional Comments

It stats the game in the new Wine version (1.3.34), you see the logo screen, but as soon it starts loading the menu, it crashes. I had to install an older prefix (1.1.2) and did the dll override to get it working. If you get this error: "Failed to lock vertex buffer in cmeshdx8 lockvertexbuffer", be sure to set your videocard-memory to more than 64MB in Wine, and it works.

HowTo / Notes


In order to get this game to run you may need to do the following:

  • Add d3dx8.dll as a dll overide under the "Libraries" tab in winecfg.
This dll can be downloaded from a windows machine or located and downloaded online.  Check your ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32 for this dll, if you have d3dx8d.dll or a .dll with a similar name you can rename this dll to d3dx8.dll and it should work just the same.
