What does not
-Install screen goes blank after files are copied to install directory. You need to manually exit out of the install. The game can be played by navigating to install directory and running wine SIMTOWER.exe
-Saving your tower will cause wine to crash. To get around this, you must create empty .TDT files first, and then overwrite them when you save your game.

At present, do NOT attempt to play SimTower with sound support enabled.
It will crash or hang infinitely, depending on your Windows version setting. In either case, it's not playable.
Disable sound, either by editing SIMTOWER.INI or disabling your sound device in winecfg's audio tab.
This is true as of 1.1.13 and today's latest git (1-23-09).
