The demo version of Supreme Commander 2.
The demo contains a tutorial and some campaign operations. Skirmish or multiplayer is not available.
Campaign missions could be started from the main menu and played without problems.
The performance was good even on high quality settings.
What does not
There are some minor graphics glitches on the terrain.
What was not tested
The game has to be installed and started from Steam. Steam had to be run in a Wine virtual desktop, otherwise the game did not start. I installed "d3dx9" using winetricks to set DLL overrides for DirectX 9, also Steam installs DirectX 9. I also disabled "mmdevapi" using a "None" DLL override to make sound work.
