This guide describes the installation of vanilla UFO ET without the popular Bman mod. Nevertheless the installation of this mod should be no problem. To install UFO ET and make it run follow this steps:
1. Install UFO ET
2. Download and install patch 2. You'll find it here.
3. Download d3dx9_26.dll and copy it to your wine's system32 directory. Override the dll configuration for this file and set it to "native".
4. Install some packages using winetricks:
winetricks d3dx9 directmusic directplay dsound ogg
5. To avoid mouse desync go to the wine configuration and disable decoration and control of windows by the window manager.
6. Start the game and have fun ;)
