wisotool is a handy winetricks-like script for automatically
installing games from .iso or .mds files copied from your own dvds
(or, if the game is freely downloadable, it will download it).
Just like winetricks, it is intended to make testing Wine easier,
but might be useful for people who simply want to install games.
Unlike winetricks, wisotool is quiet by default; it doesn't ask any
questions (except, for now, it prompts for your password so
it can mount the .iso file).

Wisotool currently supports about 95 games and/or benchmarks (see below).
Please consider contributing support for your favorite game, it's not (too)
I'm especially interested in recent or beta games; ideally wisotool
would support good games or betas on or near their day of release.

Wisotool is available at
