Almost finished with this one. It works as it is right now but I will add pictures for the installer as well.

If anyone wants me to add Steam support then I will appreciate a donation as I don't have the game on steam, or if someone else adds the support and sends me the working piece of script.

So the script became slightly shorter with staging and CSMT. I'm having some issues with CSMT however.

POL_Wine_Direct3D "CSMT" "enabled" - Does not seem to be working. Anyone who could help me with enabling CSMT from script? After installing with the script below, CSMT stays disabled.

I'm currently making a very simple wine script to make the latest version of this game run more smoothly. Was thinking of creating a POL script later as well, but having some minor issues with POL at the moment. Does anyone know what version of winetricks (if it even uses winetricks) POL uses? Getting a lot of issues when installing required libraries and such through POL, but the latest version of winetricks works fine.

Would you mind to make a pol5 script ?
