- You can't install this with Cedega 4.0 or 4.0.1 because the installer will freeze at 97%. You'll have to use a version of WineX 3.2.2 or lower to install the game. (You can also use that version to play the game.) However, the installer locks the drive, and since CD Eject Monitoring was only introduced in Cedega 4.0, it might prove a problem if you cannot eject the CD. You can eject it if you have a DVD or CD-writer drive. However, not all types of drives are supported.
- When you manage to install it, you'll have to run it with -winver win2k or change the option in your Point2Play config file. Same goes for the demo. (-winver winxp also works.) Anything below win2k makes the game crash.
- Game also runs in Wine. But you'll most likely run into eject monitoring problems during the install since Wine does not have this function at all.
- Intro movies might stutter a bit when the CD is accessed.
