What works

Game starts, plays fine, both in windowed and fullscreen modes.

What does not

I get an error message saying the game can't create a file in its directory sometimes (usually when loading a saved game). When that happens, the screen freezes and I can't see where the pointer is. If in windowed mode, I can just click enter and it will usually respond. In fullscreen mode, I can't really do better than killing the program and using xrandr to go back to my actual screen definition.

When I get the error message, wine tells me in the console:

fixme:xrandr:X11DRV_XRandR_SetCurrentMode Cannot change screen BPP from 32 to 8

Sound works in the main screen, but not during game.


What was not tested

Campaign, internet.

Additional Comments

Wine does not seem to like the latest ati-drivers (8.501). Downgrading was necessary to run the program.
