What does not
What was not tested
It would crash after the 2k Games intro. In order to get it to stop crashing I had to change my resolution to the games resoltion prior to starting the game. Once I changed my resolution to 1024x768 then start the game I had no more crashes. If needed you can probably make a script to change the resolution before the game is started and change back to normal once finished. I had the xfce4 panel show up during full screen. Unchecking "Allow the window manager to control the windows" under Graphics in winecfg got rid of it. Check "Automatically capture the mouse in full-screen windows" under Graphics in winecfg if you want the mouse to stay in game during full-screen. There is a small sound glitch when a unit mouse. Doesn't effect the game. Not sure how to get around it besides turning down SoundFX in Preferences.

This is the most frequent sound which is buggy, for the other sounds disable sound FX and enable it again as mentioned before.
