Installation, patching, starting the game, sound, intro movies, starting the campaign, save-load.
All gameplay elements work flawlessly: moving between locations, text dialogs, battles, item picking, quests, character screen, inventory etc.
What does not
Custom mouse cursor is not shown. It is an issue to the gameplay as cursor shows type of interaction with the object beneath it.
Also, game performance is not acceptable. The game runs smoothly for a few seconds after the loading screen, and then frame rate drops to some 5 fps (Radeon HD5850, Catalyst 11.1, 1920x1200, High settings, no antialiasing). This is probably bug#22528. Reducing the resolution to 1024x768 makes the frame rate almost playable.
What was not tested
Completing the campaign.
Native D3D is required, it is installed automatically with the game. Also, the game crashes on location loading with builtin msvcrt.dll, so I installed vcrun60 via winetricks. For correct rendering, these settings are required: OffscreenRenderingMode = fbo GLSL = disabled
