Normal gameplay, starting a new city, sound
What does not
Installation, some minor graphic anomalies (i.e. water towers turn bright green... but they get better), needs a cracked exe
What was not tested
Multi-player, cities that get too large
Admittedly, I've not played this game under Windows, so if it plays abnormal to THAT... I'm unawares, but I seem to have full functionality. You simply can't get this game to install through Wine, but you honestly don't need to. All you need is the game CDs and a cracked exe. Just copy the contents of both CDs to a directory (mine is at .wine/drive_c/program files/simcity 4). Then, copy the cracked exe to the same directory. After that, to run it just launch it using Wine with a "-d:software" switch. My launcher looks like this: nv WINEPREFIX="/home/Aaron/.wine" wine "C:\program files\SimCity 4\simcity 4.exe" -d:software Enjoy!

By default, SimCity 4 only allows you to use resolutions up to 1280x1024, but it's very easy to use any resolution you want, just add this to your launcher/start script:
Replace 1920x1080 with your desired resolution.
