Tested in 32-bit WINE set to Windows 98 with DirectX9 installed via winetricks. Instructions: unzip and install the preferred games. Mounting the ISO file and running the game installers from there also works. If using Linux and WINE, don't bother with the launcher, it doesn't work. Install games manually instead via their own executables. Some games use MIDI for soundtrack, so you'll have to set it up if using Linux and WINE. Not all games are guaranteed to work.
