Old test results
The test results you have selected are very old and may not represent the current state of Wine.
Selected Test Results (selected in 'Test Results' table below)
The game itself seems to work. I had no problem running the game or install it.
It worked pretty well out of the box. I hope the mouse thing can be fixed.
What does not
There is still a mouse Issue.
The problem is that you cannot rotate endlessly your character. Depending on your mouse sensetivity the Game stops at a certain degree and refuses to turn on.
What was not tested
beyond first lvl.
Well I still give nothing more then Bronze even the mouse behaviour got better. But even on most sensetive setting you can only turn about 359 Degree which simply sucks and in some possible situations makes it impossible to aim.
This game suffers from a bug that causes to fail Window Rotation at a point.
As far as I understand this the reason is, the game reads if the mouse is within the game window if not it wont affect the game. This isnt handled by wine due to the fact that it only reads X - input and not the raw mouse input. X needs to pass more information in order to acomplish a checking in a crossplattform way.
Since X changes needs some time this bug will keep the game on bronze for some time.

Starforce copy protection.

My copy of EiB uses starforce copy protection. (which dies horribly).
Does starforce work for you, or did you circumvent it? (If so, how).
P.S. Unlike many others, EiB seems to work just fine on my slowly decaying Windows XP machine...

The game plays very well using wine 0.9.58 and the patch/hack from this post:
bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6971#c26 Mouse behaviour is a bit erratic in the game menus, but appears to be flawless in-game. The patch will likely break other wine applications though, so just create a .deb file or such to be able to quickly install/uninstall.
BTW: I also needed to manually edit EiB.ini to get higher screen resolutions to work (replaced every resolution mentioned to the desired one). I also edited Default.ini the same way for good measure.
