Installation, Configuration, Fullscreen and Window.
Graphics was full.
What does not
Everything works correctly but you need MouseWarpOverride set to "force" to be able to use the mouse normally (360 degrees).
What was not tested
Tested 4 hours of gameplay.
You need dotnet20 and be in wineprefix 32-bit since dotnet20 does not work on 64-bit. Additionally to be able to use the mouse in a 360 degree manner, you need to set the MouseWarpOverride to "force" (mwo=force).
