Starting the application, initial menus, in game tutorial, starting campaign
What does not
Cannot (yet) use higher screen resolution (1600) stick to 1048.
Installer does not terminate normally after completion(32 bit issue?)?
Video resolution does not change back on quit, starting video resolution changes flicker
* Killing the installer manually.
* Using 1048 resolution, loading map crashed otherwise (workaround possible?) https://bugs.winehq.org/show_b...
* Use 32 Bit Bottle! Otherwise, creating heroes etc. (everything except demo) does not work:
WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-32 winecfg;<pre> WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-32/ wine Battlecry\ II.exe
What was not tested
Multiplayer, completing missions, campaign (worked before, would change the report later if issues occur).
See way earlier reports for Multiplayer stuff etc.

Elements such as taskbars designed to cover other applications are not hidden when Warlords Battlecry II is run in full-screen. This can be fixed by not allowing the window manager to control Wine applications (can be changed in winecfg), or by changing the taskbar's options so that windows are allowed to cover it.
To get multiplayer working, place the DLLs in this archive in Wine's windows/system32 directory. Then, start winecfg and add dll overrides (native, builtin) for the following DLLs: dplayx, dpnet, dpnhpast and dpwsockx.
NOTE: the game freezes when exiting a multiplayer game.
