Game of the Year edition
This is not just an update.
There is an additional singleplayer mission.
The multiplayer is compatible with NOLF v1.004.
What does not
On modern systems dialogues are skipping without limiting framerate. As there is no possiblity in Linux though the graphics cards drivers,
I found as a workaround to use the software DxWnd. This usually is used to force DirectX fullscreen only games to run in a window, but also allows for an working fullscreen mode.
I installed several workarounds via winetricks, some of them might not be necessary, as I finally only got the game fully running by using DxWnd:
What was not tested
New installation with DxWnd and mimimum of Winetricks workarounds necessary
Only works in combination with framerate limiter or DxWnd.
