Nothing, game refuses to load
What does not
Basically everything, game refuses to load, complains about backbuffering not working correctly, could just be an nvidia issue (I have no way of testing other gfx cards)
What was not tested
Well everything since the game won't load
Downgrade to 1.3.4 for fm2011. On a fresh install it works "almost" perfectly (being not a platinum and you have to change a couple of things like enabling backbuffering sometimes and turning off gameux dll in winecfg)

From personal testing and user's in the threads the following workarounds work for fm2011.
At the most you will need these to get fm2011 working.
Warning for some users
It seems that mostly Nvidia users are affected by this and in a variety of a distro's; basically if you run fm2011 and it doesn't come up straight away and your last msg involves the "cannot change backbuffer count yet "
A user suggested downloading a program called "stress" and running;
stress --cpu $(number of cores you have)
This seems to help the game load quicker, it doesn't work everytime. Alternatively you can wait (faster the computer, the longer it takes from testing). I also found running another direct3d game in a window elsewhere also helped (for me it was an EVE Online client)
Another warning, starting a new game from within a game (as in not from main menu) seems to result in the game hanging, it's as if it's restarting it's 3d engine which triggers the problem above. You would need to quit and start from main menu if it dies.
All credit to everyone involved.
