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)
Practically everything. The only glitch I encountered was your mouse not being able to move over all of the screen upon startup. This can be worked around by moving the mouse to the edge of the screen in the opposite direction of the one you can't move towards. It will then work correctly for the rest of the game. I suspect this is because of the mouse warp hack in the DirectInput code.
What does not
The mouse behaviour is not entirely correct upon startup (see what does work).
What was not tested
I played through the main quest and some of the smaller ones until I hit the shareware barrier and encountered no problems. So not all quests were played, and not all areas visited in every single detail.

Under certain circumstances, I have a black screen when I start the game, but still have sound. Using no DLL overrides:
When I start the game from my home directory (/home/Keefo), the black screen problem occurs. When I start the game from its program directory (/home/Keefo/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Geneforge/4), I don't have this problem. As a workaround to be able to start it from the gnome menu, I can create a bash script that simply cds to the program directory and executes the game.
The same happens for Geneforge 3, but not 2 or 1. This has happened every wine version I've used (but I have only tested the solution with 1.0-rc1).
I hope this helps someone. It took me a long time to figure out why the video only worked sometimes on this game. : )
