Additional Comments

Tested with nVIDIA GeForce4 Ti 4200 AGP 8X, 128Mb RAM, nVIDIA drivers 9631 (latest one nVIDIA allows for my card). Sound must be set on Emulation in winecfg, also, OSS must be selected... ALSA works too, but OSS seems safer. I haven't tested playing without sound in winecfg yet. The graphics look good, though untextured... their color remains tho, for example you can see the red & blue "square" lights in the loading screens.
