Elements such as taskbars designed to cover other applications are not
hidden when Worms 2 is run in full-screen. This can be fixed
by not allowing the window manager to control Wine applications (can be
changed in winecfg), or by changing the taskbar's options so that
windows are allowed to cover it.
Multiplayer To get multiplayer working, place the DLLs in this archive
in Wine's windows/system32 directory. Then, start winecfg and add dll
overrides (native, builtin) for the following DLLs: dplayx, dpnet,
dpnhpast and dpwsockx. NOTE: the game freezes when exiting a multiplayer game.

How to get Worms 2 working if you're getting a CD error
by Murray Colpman on Friday October 12th 2012, 17:27
Basically, in some situations (not all, it seems, because some people don't get this on Windows but some do, but I digress), Worms 2 will only scan the first CD-ROM drive it finds.
How does it find CD-ROM drives? Why, by looking at the drive letters in order!
So, all you need to do is ensure Worms 2's CD-ROM drive is mounted as the first drive letter that is a CD-ROM drive. you can do this by deleting or moving all unwanted drive symlinks from .wine/dosdevices and moving Worms 2's drive symlinks to d: and d::, say - make sure you get both the single- and double-colon symlinks or you'll just cause more problems.
rm d: d:: # Doesn't matter that you're doing this as wine should create them back if they're important (theoretically!)
mv x: d: # Assuming x is the letter at which your Worms 2 disc is currently mounted.
mv x:: d::
And with that, I should really resubmit a better rating.
