It works fine, but needs a couple of native dlls to run, this is what keep it from getting Platinum rating.

To play this mod you need to have a previously installed a copy of Wing Commander Secret Ops, if you haven't, download Secret Ops starter pack from here, episodes are not needed for this install (but they not hurt).
Then download Standoff from here, game installs without problems from setup file.
Adding required DLLs
In order to run, Standoff requires the following dlls, put a copy of MSVBVM60.DLL and mfc42.dll into system32 directory on your ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32 directory. Without this game will crash.
Ensure that you install Standoff Chapter 4 or higher as it comes with a native OpenGL renderer that offer the best experience under Wine.
Direct3D mode is below a frame per second (at least on Nvidia Cards) so avoid it.
So when the launcher appears, select OpenGL, any desired resolution and, enjoy!
