What works

Installing 1.0, then patching to 1.01.  Playing game, menus, videos, cutscenes.  Single-player, multiplayer: player vs. cpu, tutorial.  All controls/gestures (KDE users will want to disable window shortcuts for Wine class windows to use 'Alt-drag')

What does not

In-game video options for rendering: OpenGL (best performance, but crashes after awhile), Direct3D HAL (utterly sluggish framerates).  Must use default 'Software Rendering' (still sluggish at higher resolutions/details).


What was not tested

Internet play (account necessary?)

Additional Comments

'Gold' for sub-par performance compared to Windows with default settings. Ultimately 'Silver' because I hadn't confirmed multiplayer (which is essential for some people). Wine built from source and ATI Catalyst 9.10 on a 2600XT Crossfire system.
