Hmm, didn't notice a wineguid problem, I just added this around the same
line for d3dx8 in configure.ac, ran autoconf and went on as normal:

It's not entirely without textures, and I get a lot further into the
game with these patches than in opengl mode. I ran around for a bit
seemingly without problems for a while, but the very first time I tried
it did bomb out right at the start like with opengl. I made a
screenshot of just outside a start room. The terrain seems to be
textured, whereas everything else isn't. I guess terrain is handled
differently. If you want to see it I've got it up on a webpage:
If a fullsize screenshot is useful to anyone let me know and I'll email
Performance in this state is rather good. It seems to be very smooth
running forward. Turning is less smooth, but definately playable. The
machine is relatively powerful though - 3500+ Athlon 64, 1GB ram and
a GeForce 6800.
On the OpenGL front, I too get scuppered by the minimap error. It looks
very promising otherwise though.
