Selected Test Results (selected in 'Test Results' table below)
The game works great: cities, effects, campaign map, gameplay everything works out of the box
What does not
There are some troubles with the camera:
1) Zooming works but sometimes when i zoom in i can't zoom out than
2) On campaign map i can't rotate camera with right mouse, only ctrl + arrows works
What was not tested
Hardware (Thinkpad T420):
CPU: Intel i5 Sandybridge
GPU: NVIDIA NVS 4200M
Arch64 with wine and bumblebee installed in 32bit subsystem
schroot -p -- optirun wine H5_Game.exe
To allow camera change by holding down the right mouse button, edit input.cfg found in /profiles/and change MOUSE_AXIS_X & MOUSE_AXIS_Y to 90. The C: drive can normally be found in ~/.wine/drive_c.
If you can't find the patch you're looking for at one of the update sites, try the other one.
Installation If the setup program asks for 'setup.exe', kill it, and then run 'killall -9 IKernel.exe'
Gameplay If the game does not allow you to choose a resolution higher than 1024x768, run regedit and add the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct3D, then add the string value VideoMemorySize and set it to the amount of video memory you have

I've played homm5 on my laptop when there was windows. now i've ubuntu 10.10 and tried to run it. i've put virtual desktop with 1024x768 resolution, added a string value with my 64 memory size in wine register and it don't want to run. i guess problem may be in my grafic card (intel express mobile 965), but it ran in windows, so i don't even. here is debug information from terminal:
Note that the game creates user related config inside 'My Documents' which takes precedence over installed input.cfg.
Therefore when changing MOUSE_AXIS_X(Y) you should change it in wine 'My Documents' folder.

I'm experiencing very weird problem.
During the game some contents won't display. In example when Im in my castle and I click Recruit creatures nothing shows up. Can't do that straight from building too.
Same thing when I try to run campanion - I click on scenario name and nothing displays.
The game doesn't crash, I can return to what I was doing, so I don't think it's hardware issue.
Any help please?

I was able to run this game fullscreen in 1920x1080 without flickers under Ubuntu 10.04x64 (Core I7 + Radeon 5750)
- Make sure to disable compiz (Remove flickers)
- Run winecfg and toggle desktop emulation to the resolution you want, you might need to edit your HOMM IV profile in profiles folder in your game folder and set the resolution matching your emulated desktop resolution.
