What works

Almost everything is fine, and the game runs as it should.

The only configuration that needs to be changed is video mode in the game menu - to OpenGL with the default driver.

What does not

Elevators sometimes glue the player to the ground, this can be avoided by jumping on the elevator just before it stops next time.

The main menu does funny stuff - flickers and such. Occasionally, it freezes.


What was not tested

Multiplayer game, and the second half of the game (after the chapter "on the rail").

Additional Comments

The OpenGL video mode with the default driver has to be used. Sofware produces either nothing or terribly lowers resolution, Direct3d makes a lot of textures transparent. There seems to be a minor bug when hitting corpses with the crowbar - the crowbar lags for a moment (the game does NOT). This doesn't really affect the gameplay and might be a genuine game bug, not restricted to wine. Tested under windows 98 mode, but seems to work also under xp. I didn't test for other ones, but should work, too.
