What works

Installing the game works without any problems, it even works faster than in windows (xp) on the same PC. Single player campaign works with no problem. Making a LAN game also works, and all options and menues work perfectly. Game and ingame save/load processes run faster than in XP on the same machine

What does not

The intro and ingame movies don't play. After using a savegame slot, it cannot be overwritten again (note I have sneaked around that bug by using 2 slots, each time I save to one of them, I delete the previous one), sound works only when wine sound driver is set to "Emulation", but in this mode 3D sound cannot be used even if supported by hardware, and sound is a little laggy at all.


What was not tested

Uninstalling the game, and internet connection to the official server.

Additional Comments

There are some little bugs, like the GNOME cursor showing over the original sacred one, game runs a little slower than normal (almost unnoticable) and Alt+tabbing while running the game may cause it to disconnect from the mouse device
