As this game is regularly updated (and has been over the past decade), all results are condensed into a single version that represents the current state of the game.
Everything after applying patch mentioned below.
What does not
Game suffers from bug http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6971 It can be however fixed using patch to re-center the mouse only when it hits screen edge, as detailed in above linked bug thread.
What was not tested
Nothing I know of.
Occasional crashes (one per 10 hours of gameplay or so) might occur, but seem to be due to memory leaks in the game itself. Game is likely more stable under wine than under windows vista. Performance issues can be expected with older hardware, especially soundcards without hardware mixer. Also, I would appreciate other reports concerning sound vs fps. Currently my feeling is that sound on both "hardware" and "software" is mixed by the game and the game suffers terrible fps drops when lots of sounds are played at the same time. This is dependent on hardware I suppose.
