What works

Everything except for in-game videos (see comments). I just played up to the Friendly Arms Inn, so didn't try much.

What does not

I had trouble with playing in game videos (or the demo videos on disk one), see comments. Also sometimes the sound stops playing. I couldn't figure out the reason, but saving the game helps (When the game is saved, the sound plays again...)


What was not tested

multi-player, playing more than a few hours

Additional Comments

I had to disable pulseaudio (in terminal: pulseaudio -k) to play the videos. (Somehow I think the performance improved by changing the sound settings in winecfg to use oss) I didn't create iso images of the game cd's as suggested in but instead created a symlink from ~/.wine/dosdevices/d:: to /dev/scd0 and ~/.wine/dosdevices/d: to /media/cdrom0. This is not as convenient when it comes to changing the disks, though. (But consumes much less disk space)
