Game installation went fine GraphicsConfig works nice too Game launches, sound works great with OSS(v4.0), performance is nice, game settings, all missions are working. Everything is working I guess
What does not
I was using 3d mark patch for wine. As a result structures and units was invisible. After recompiling wine without any patches everything seems to work fine
What was not tested
Sound with ALSA
The game needs Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable files
