General game play.
All graphical and audio settings.
Game worked for over 15 hours of continuous single player, and 3-4 hours of continuous multiplayer, without any issues.
What does not
* Full screen with Twinview set is broken.
* When run in fullscreen or windowed mode inside a virtual desktop the mouse loses focus often pulling the cursor off the screen and holding it there for a short time.
* Detection of screen resolution for windowed mode, or fullscreen on dual monitors.
To run at the resolution I wanted, and outside of a virtual desktop to work around the two issues above, I had to create a virtual desktop of the size I wanted, ran the game with the -window option, selected that resolution from the screen resolution list and exited the game. Once this was done disabling the virtual desktop left the app at the desired size.
* Black box around cursor.
* Various crashes in the SP campaign.
First time you meet up with dog company, and several other points in the SP game, these are easy to avoid though and may be apparent on Windows. The checkpoint saves make this an non-issue.
* USB Headset sound refuses to work with CoH even when configured in winecfg and working in other win32 apps.
