Installing and playing the game. Works flawless, minor issues with graphics but still fully playable.
What does not
StarForce is an ass, their copy-protection does not work on Wine and especially not in Windows itself. (Windows 7 repaired itself)
What was not tested
There are some graphical glitches, like the ammo and insanebars are not visible for me, and during cutscenes the whole screen turns black, you have to switch resolution to make the image appear again. Could probably try some other non-default offscreen rendering and such. But I used the Wine-desktop and highest game resolution. Also Wine helped me to install the game for Windows, by way of dodging StarForce which is in fact installing its own CD-rom Drivers. Thanks all Winemakers! Installation was in a way dodgy, would fail numerous times saying "Installation was interrupted" and some MSI errors when switching CD's but after a few tries it finally finished.
