If you want to play in fullscreen wine, videos are played in black screen

a workaround is modify iso CD

- download
- put ddraw.dll and aqrit.cfg in CD root

set in winecfg->libraries ddraw (native,builtin)

and run the game from CD

- mount CD with: mount -o loop CD.iso /mnt/dvd 

- cd /mnt/dvd

- wine launch.exe or checker.exe

Additional Comments

After various test with clean prefix with wine-staging 9.3 and 9.8 i think with other versions, the game install and runs with all functions

My steps are:

- winecfg and set Windows version in Win98 and Graphics tab, select virtual desktop 1024x768 for running wine in window

- mount CD with mount -o loop CD.iso /mnt/dvd 

- cd /mnt/dvd

- wine Checker.exe.

Works great and select Creative 3D Blaster (rendition)

Install only miscellaneus and don't install DirectX3

- After installation without close Setup, 'click' on Options and check Graphics card, Creative 3D Blaster (rendition) and resolution 640x480 in Fullscreen

- Select Play... 

And et voila! Works without problem of detect DirectHardware....
