    Good game and good guide too

    And runs stable in recent wine versions

    :)

    Have you played it for longer time ( like more than 10 hours total )?
    As I have bought gold edition lately and after installing and playing for first few hours, it was quite stable. But since couple of days it freezes like every 30 minutes :(
    And on appdb site I have read that Anniversary Edition also suffers from freezing.

    Found the solution! wine-stating is needed ( as this option did not make to wine yet ) and CSMT must be enabled. Played few times for like 2 hours stright and no freeze!
    This game is great and now is playable.
