Wine version 1.1.42 :)

Well, I was'nt entirely honest with the everything worked part, never got sounds to work in obsi, even tho they did work in other apps under wine. Didnt rly poked around alot so might have been easy fixed using other sound drivers.

Sound in Linux can be kind of stupid at times due to all the available sound drivers, esp. when they all want to run at once. I often find myself issuing a "pulseaudio killall" to keep pulseaudio from messing things up.

I have noticed on my Ubuntu desktop @ work that if I have the desktop sound effects on (the jungle sounds lol) that the game will lose sound as soon as I click out of the Obsidian window and never turn back on.

Might update this.

For me Obsidian works out of the box using wine version 1.4.1 on Ubuntu 12.04.

Cool with me. This is pretty dated.
