What does not
What was not tested
The game was tested from the beginning to the end, including all DLCs.
Hardware setup: Intel Core 2 Duo E6700, 8 GiB RAM, GeForce GTX560, nvidia driver 310.19 Everything seems to work fine out of the box, including all graphics settings, the game is fully playable. Model LOD switching is noticeably slow, however. Mass Effect suffers from the same on Windows, but level of detail switching seems much sloppier on Wine. Additional note: extremely rare crashes are possible, yet it doesn't seem to be a Wine bug: it happens on Windows just as well.

Be aware, that aforementioned stand-alone config utility in version 1.0 (unpatched) of Mass Effect has many issues under Windows as well, ofted resulting in its hang.
This problem occurs mainly (but not exclusively) on quad-processor machines.
Patched version should have this problems fixed (supposedly).
Get audio to work
Edit "Documents/BioWare/Mass Effect/Config/BIOEngine.ini"
Add the following under the "[ISACTAudio.ISACTAudioDevice]" section:
Ensure "Hardware Audio" is turned off in Sound settings in game
To get the MEUITM installer to work
A custom MassEffectModder.exe must be suppliedThis is seemingly due to it using functions not fully implemented in wine/mono
A hacky, usable version can be found here: https://github.com/DougTy/Mass...
Occasional "rendering exception" error while playing MEIUTM requires your game's binary be large address aware.
MassEffect.exe can be patched using this tool: https://www.techpowerup.com/fo...
Make a backup before patching!
