What does not
actual battles. the screen stays black and there is no indication that any fight is going on.
What was not tested
Steam version, at 1.23 for now (edit: a patch is available to manually patch the game to 1.24. There is no change in function though: both the actual gameplay as well as the ship designing screen are unusable). Admin note: rating changed to conform to the rating definitions.

Some testing has revealed that GSB functions fine if the "Allow pixel shader (if supported by hardware)" checkbox in the wine configuration tool is disabled.
Apparently enabling pixel shaders on capable hardware (NVIDIA or ATI cards with fairly recent drivers) does something the game doesn't like.
