Old versions from 1.0 to 1.2
What does not
Running the game. Trying to run it full screen results in the program creating two tiled windows on the desktop and then freezing. It is necessary to log out to get out of there. Running it with a virtual desktop, and the game crashes and creates an in game long error message.
What was not tested
Everything except for the installation.
This was done on LinuxMint 16 Cinnamon 64-bit using an AMD 5770 graphics card that is using the proprietary drivers labeled "fglrx-updates Version 2:13.101-0ubuntu3" in the driver manager GUI. The CPU is an AMD Phenom II X6 1055T with 4GB of RAM.

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
