Installation works perfectly. Game runs correctly (data loads, there is no crash, it's even more playable in Linux than Windows for me, but in Windows it was just constantly crashing on videos / game loading).
What does not
Mouse behaviour isn't correct. When you move the mouse, it will get out of the screen when approaching the borders of the window, which causes the mouse mouvement ingame to stop. This is a very bad thing for gameplay, you have to use keyboard only to can properly play. This also happens in fullscreen and when using a separate X server. Performances are very poor, especially in towns (when there are a lot of characters on screen). When you focus on a target, it can slow down the FPS too. The rest (ie. background, textures, etc.) is pretty decent.
What was not tested
Most of gameplay after the chapter 1. The game seemed to work well, though. I did not test the Dx10.exe with Vista as the Wine OS.

1.) You can improve game performance with this registry settings:
[Software\\Wine\\Direct3D] "DirectDrawRenderer"="opengl" "VideoMemorySize"="896" Set VideoMemorySize to correct amount of RAM for your graphics card. 2.)Run the game with WINEDEBUG=-all command (note: if you want to submit bug and post error logs, make sure you are NOT using this command) 3.)Make sure you have latest official drivers installed for you graphics card.
The game can be installed and patched.
To make the game start up with wine you need to add d3dx9_36.dll to .wine/system32
There is easy way to fix the mouse problem, just add this registry key:
You will have to use keyboard in menu with this settings, but in game mouse is working without any bugs.
