Almost everything. Gameplay, all sounds and music, videos and multiplayer (needs DLL overrides for DirectPlay) via TCP/IP using Hamachi. Problems with multilplayer.
What does not
Multiplayer is unstable, it disconnects randomly (receiving some Wine error dialogs then disconnecting from game), sometimes causes infinite hangs (then need to kill the game), I don't know the reason. I played via TCP/IP using Hamachi (version 184.108.40.206, beta quality).

This game requires a crack to work.
Installing the patches is highly recommended, as they provide fixes for serious bugs in the game (not Wine related).
There are different patches for the different versions of the game
