Pretty much everything, including multiplayer
What does not
Some settings are buggy. Bumpmapping enabled causes ships and buildings to be rendered in flat black.
What was not tested
Single player modes
Lower FPS than running in native Windows. If you have a decently fast machine, then it will be playable. (the version of wine is default for the distro, not the one listed in test results. Maintainers remark)

The beta patch 1.3 public beta 4 requires a special workaround in order to get it working properly in Wine.
1) Run 'winecfg'
2) Go to 'libraries' tab
3) Add a new DLL override titled 'dbghelp'
4) Ensure that it uses the following settings: 'Native then builtin'
This should allow you to play BZ2 v 1.3pb4 providing your videocard drivers have proper 3D, and you are using the right compatibility settings (Win98 is recommended)
All future test reports where this has not been done for 1.3pb4 will be rejected.
