i am sorry, if this is a little misleading. the "patch" only changes a
stored string in the registry. this is only to convince the game, that
"directx 9c" is installed. whatever the config does beside the string
compare - WINE does it good enough so the config is convinced in having
dx9c. it then suggests on my machine the dx7 renderer, which is due to
the missing performance of my machine - i can not say, what is missing
in WINE, that make the app think dx7 is appropriate.
