What works

Installation, everything in the game I have tested... (campaign, museum, quick patrols... sounds ;)). Works really perfectly, I RECOMMEND to use wine version 1.1.43, NOT 1.1.42 (1.1.43 means about 7-10 fps faster game!).

My computer: Intel Core 2 Quad Q9xxx, 4GB RAM, 512 MB graphic card.

The game has fps 20-30, really very good, with no lags (in a submarine, the performance is worse a bit, about 17-20 fps, but still very good. This isn't a problem of wine, but of the game (next patch should fix it - v1.2).

If you have a poor performance, you should try to disable shadows in the graphical options list. Almost no change in graphics, but better performance (about ~5 fps ?).

What you should have installed for playing this game? vcrun2008 (I have vcrun2005 too), good to have DirectX9.x, and needed to have .NET Framework 2.X (maybe in future it will need 3.X) (runtime libraries, good to use winetricks for installing these things). Than it worked perfectly. If I will find something more you need to have installed, I will write it here. (I had some DLL overwrites before I installed the game, too...).

Additional Comments

If you wouldn't need to install some things explicitly (in What Works paragraph), I would give a Platinum. But now it can have Gold rating only.
