What works

Not a lot - screen resolution changes.

Launcher/Starter helper app seems to work fine. Config.exe also works.

What does not

Installer (GSP Version) though the autoplay.exe does work if you run it manually, installer crashed. (I copied a working windows installation, then manually added a registry entry o set game path so I could run updater). Updater didn't seem to work properly (though it said it completed),

The game! Crashes

err:ddraw:IDirectDrawImpl_GetGDISurface IWineD3DDevice::GetBackBuffer failed

HowTo / Notes

Proposed solution to fixing the missing fonts issue
A solution proposed by Dotevo suggests to run the X server in 16-bit color depth. This can be achieved by running : xinit /usr/bin/xterm -- :1 -ac -depth 16 Launching this command will start the X server with a rudimentary terminal (/usr/bin/xterm), which you can use to launch Wine and Airline Tycoon.
