What works

Most of X3 can work on Wine.  The videos and music need special attention but they can work.  The 2.5 version of course does not require a CD so there is no need to work around with a Fixed-EXE.  

What does not

Videos and music do not work out of the box.

Manual saves do not work.  It creates the file and dumps it in its proper place (home folder under EgoSoft) but the game does not read it as a save file. This does not cause a broken game.  Every time you dock the game autosaves and for whatever reason you can load the autosave.

In a chase on a planet in the beginning of the campaign the screen turns black (and some textures do show for a second) with sounds still playing. This isn't intrusive to gameplay as its a ingame cutscene.  It returns to normal back in space.

Additional Comments

The videos and the music actually have problems in Windows also. The game requires older codecs and one of them specifically designated to an older version of Windows Media Player. To fix this problem I would not patch the game first. Install Active Movie http://howto.landure.fr/gnu-linux/install-directx-9-0c-on-linux-using-wine and I suggest downloading and installing a directx9 distributable. I've always had problems with winetricks. Use the appropriate directx dll overrides and add amstream.dll as native. Then patch the game and when the patch asks you to install an older windows media player, agree. That codec is in there.
