Everything gameplay-related. Also sound is fine. Some graphic issues remain (see below). Definitely playable.
What does not
On every exit, the game pagefaults, which has the undesirable effect of not saving changed options, so on each start I have to switch resolution.
Also, when switching resolutions , the window will apparently lose its fullscreen status, making the GNOME panel appear over it. Not exactly the nastiest bug, since the panel can be hidden with a single click. Could be a problem, though, for those who allow DirectX apps to hold the mouse, since they could not click the panel ^^
Finally, windowed mode does not work: an undecorated window (i.e. without borders) appears with the right size for the selected resolution, but the graphics inside it are corrupt and garbled, barely allowing a return to fullscreen mode. The correct outcome would be a decorated window (with the wine/WM borders) and, of course, the right graphics inside.
What was not tested
Only got to Cartago mission (approx. 1/3 of the game)

To install simply run the installation as follows:
WINEDLLOVERRIDES="ole32,oleaut32,rpcrt4=n" wine d:setup.exe
Note: Replace d: with your CD-ROM drive, but be sure that you have it in the form of a drive letter otherwise when you run the application it will not be able to find the CD. So go winecfg and click on drives to get the set up properly.
Running the game:
Once setup has been run and CaesarIII is installed you can run it by simply typing:
Note: This assumes that you are in the terminal and already in the directory that CaesarIII is installed (for example: .wine/drive_c/Caesar3/)
