What works

Wing Commander I, II and III, all videos and sound.  All addons work.  Previously reported sound stuttering in Wing Commander III is now gone.

What does not

Wing Commander II crashes on exit and does not return to full resolution.

Wing Commander III will lose control of mouse and keyboard in some interactive movie choices, and in the in flight options screen from time to time.  Cycling focus back to it should restore things to proper working order.

On my 1600x900 monitor, you have to 'scroll' over to Wing Commander I and II on first launch. 

Initial and addon installers must be run from somewhere within your wine prefix. (PlayOnLinux's 'Run executable in prefix' will fail to install, best run installer from terminal
