Launching the game Creating a game Multiplayer Ending the game
What does not
MOTD does not work, even with native urlmon. Atleast it does not crash.
What was not tested
Gold due to the urlmon override. Also, the game still seems to suffer from horrible FPS, even in wine 1.1.33. I was getting 20 average, with mat_queue_priority 2, and all settings on low. Using an 8800 GTS overclocked w/ the latest 190 drivers.

- To get past the "Incomplete Installation" error: Upgrade to Wine 1.1.35 or later - To get past crashing at the MOTD display when joining a multiplayer game: Either: Use native urlmon.dll (can be limited to just left4dead2.exe), Or: Use wine-1.1.27 or earlier. - To improve the performance 1. Enable multicore rendering. This increases performance by 10-15 fps in most places for me. 2. Use the following patch: http://bugs.winehq.org/attachment.cgi?id=24812 Note that you may need to minimise/restore or otherwise lose and regain focus of the game to fix the flashlight and some textures if using this patch. The performance is so much better in wine-1.1.33 that this doesn't seem to be needed any more. The framerate with this in wine-1.1.32 was still higher than the framerate without this in wine-1.1.33 though.
