This is the basic version of Empire Earth, without the AOC expansion.
There are 3 versions:
1.0, 1.04 and 2.0. These verions don't make any noticeable difference in Wine.
The 2.0 version is NOT Empire Earth II

Tested using retail version patched to 2.0
Requires winetricks dmusic for music support (music can be disabled by setting HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SSSI\Empire Earth\Music Enabled to "0")
Requires native msvcrt.dll AND msvcp60.dll for multiplayer lobby support (otherwise a "runtime error" dialog appears)
If music is disabled and player enters multiplayer lobby music re-enables and stays enabled (if using builtin dmusic, music sounds choppy)
Mouse does not moves with builtin dinput.dll. Mouse moves but it is uncontrollable using native dinput.dll. However when entering the multiplayer lobby mouse seems to work OK, using any kind of dinput. Mouse brokens again when returning to main menu and in-game. Artifacts appear in places where the mouse had moved.
In-game seems OK, but not much testing was possible because mouse issues.
Summary: requieres mouse fix. seems to be fully playable.
