What works

A game that's definitely in my personal top 5.

I use a vista install that i run directly from the ntfs partition and everything seems to work perfectly, no registry tweaks except that I have installed directx with winetricks (this seems to make a serious difference for a lot of games, and thats probably normal since not all dll's are fully implemented)

Apart from the fact that graphics are rendered differently (everything seems darker) and the game crashed once when I reset the video settings to max everything seems to be in order. (I do seem to be getting a slightly slower framerate than in vista x64, but can't say that it makes the game unplayable)

What does not

I get this bug in a lot of games, apparently wine does not detect the keyboard right so every time i press '6' or in fact 'ยง' nothing happens, i have to use different settings every time

I did notice a little glitch when switching to the lightning shield and the lifestealing sword though.

 AND, when blocking or casting a spell I sometimes get shield and/or sword rendered from the bottom as well as from the top of the screen, maybe something similar to the flip-bug in warhammer and other games

 AND, apparently it crashed out once too, so I'm gonna have to downgrade it to silver (could be a windows crash tho)


What was not tested

Installer was not tested but from what I see from other test results that shouldn't be a problem.
