Old versions from 1.0 to 1.2
Installer runs perfectly, even the annoying repeating tune.
The game runs, and even loads faster than when on Windows!
What does not
The audio for me was incredibly skippy and incredibly unbearable!
The guy on the main menu spoke like "Gggg-ggreeetings----- si--sir-e. Yyyur ssstrr--oong--hold ---awa-iits y-ouou."
Strongholds interaction with the system clock does not seem to work, as the squire on the menu did not tell me that Christmas was in a few shopping days.
What was not tested
Online play, playing a game - could not bear the audio so I did not try.

This should work for any app, if you have Intel + AMD or AMD + AMD with open source drivers.
If you have laptop with hybrid graphics cards. You can launch game with command:
env DRI_PRIME=1 vblank_mode=0 wine ~/path/to/your/exe/file
In case of using command, you get swich to powerful graphics card and disable vsync for more FPS.
If you have Mesa drivers 17.x.x or more, you can use this command:
env DRI_PRIME=1 mesa_glthread=true vblank_mode=0 wine ~/path/to/your/exe/file
Last command is most best in performance that you can get in this moment, you can use it for any wine application that you need. But argument mesa_glthread=true may not always work, so if your app crash, remove it.
For Steam users, you can set environment variable of any applications in properties.
DRI_PRIME=1 mesa_glthread=true vblank_mode=0 %command%
(It will work only with native Steam for Linux) For Wine, you have to start Steam or game with those arguments
