A little unrelated to what is being handled by this "time of the thread", but I managed to get TS3 running on Wine, which I had never been able to with Sims 2.
Install went fine and everything works (I have compared with a windows install).
However, it seems to hit the same bug that C&C:RA3 has - it crashes after a while. I can see the corruption and save it before it crashes, so no big, big problem.
The programmers did a good job because they seem to be using a technique to save the game in a temporary file before overwriting the save game file, thus avoiding data corruption in case of a crash while saving the game.
Anyway, if we fix that random gfx crash, it's 100% working (and it's not slow at all)
