LAUNCHING AND REQUIREMENTS
Set compatibility to XP.
Rename your i82stub.exe file to i82stubZ.exe and update your launchers. The above works, because if i82stub.exe is detected by Windows, then a broken compaibility fix is applied, and causes some sort of "aclayer" error. Renaming the .exe fools Windows into not applying the broken fix, and allows the game to run under XP.
This is an old work around I used when I was running XP. I don't know if it's necessary in Wine but it was the first thing I did after installing the game.
I have d3dx9 and d3dx10 (Directx9 and Directx10 for Wine) installed. i82 required Directx7, back in the day, so it's probably necessary.
Vcrun2005 and vcrun2008 are also installed. Unknown if needed.
The windows registry host fix used to be required on Windows XP for anyone to be able to see a game you've hosted in Multiplayer. It was the second thing I did after installing the game but I'm unsure if it's needed in Wine. Extract this zip to your main install directory.
A new servers.dat file is required to see multiplayer servers that still exist. Place it in your main install directory.
Numpad keys, both CONTROL keys, both ALT keys and the LEFT SUPER key DO work so remapping some functions that use keys that don't work by default is necessary.
All default key bindings need to be remapped before they would work as the default keys are, for instance, "Numpad 8" where "Wine Numpad 8" is required.

Persistence pays off.
