What works

The game installs correctly with GOG installer. It runs perfectly well on maximum settings. The mouse issue is here but a simple left click works for me, I can use the mouse on the entire Postal 2 game (not only the top-left part).

What does not

For now, all I tried worked : Singleplayer, binding keyboard, changing graphics, loading screens, killing people, misrespecting cops, buying milk and burning a dog. More seriously, the game is running BUT it has some mh... little freeze especially in the first area where there's a lot of animations. It looks like loading time (less than one second) but it always happen, it never stops. You can notice it when you turn too fast. It's not lowering framerate, just freezing the game multiple times to "load" the game (I never had this on the GNU/Linux version).

Also, SOME textures sometimes turn darker when you are facing a certain cardinal point. For example, you stand up in a place and everything look fine, you turn your head a little and half of the textures goes darker and if you return to the initial point of view, textures are back to normal.

Here are two screenshots to understand the problem :

HowTo / Notes

Mouse only works in top left 1/4 of the screen.

If the mouse only works on the upper left corner of the screen use this:

Open up regedit and navigate to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\DirectInput

Add a key named MouseWarpOverride, and set it's value to force.
