What does not
What was not tested
Multiplayer, becouse this version is too old for Ubi servers.
Admin note: network play requires Windows dlls

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.
