Additional Comments

1.For succesfull playing it is mandatory to change these lines in file /Content/SetiousSam2/Sam2.ini (this file will be created after first run): gfx_iAPI = 1; sfx_iAPI = 1; 2.Openal dll should be installed in wine Of course couldn't be Platinum, because need some tricks, but after that game runs flawlessly

Finally got Sam2 working with the gfx_iAPI = 1 setting. Sound runs with standard setting here with Soundblaster Audigy Platinum 1 and jack/alsa. Didn't need Openal or change sfx_iAPI.

Thanks for the gfx hint!
