Gaming in general works fine. Zen garden, all the mini-games. I have finished the game. 3D-acceleration finally works in the latest version of wine, (1.3.26) (YAY!) :)
What does not
Sound breaks after a while, or when switching to another window, and then back again. Some times it may happen that the sound comes back for some reason. Not sure what triggers it though. Also on some bonus levels, especially when that crazy Dave is talking, the sound is more likely to disappear. Also in at the final boss it seem impossible for me to get sound to work. The shop is more likely to miss sound too. One that happened to me we the other day was that I was running another program in wine, namely Snes9x 1.43. When I closed snes9x, the sound came back to PVZ. To get the sound back one need to first finish the level that miss sound, and then quit the game. The next level seem to have sound, if lucky.
What was not tested
I have yet not finished the game twice, and I don't have all the stuff from the shop. I have not tried the tree of wisdom yet.
If you don't have the latest version of wine, make sure to upgrade it as soon as possible. The game runs MUCH smoother with the 3D-acceleration enabled.
