Everything worked . Â Fresh install of wine and new prefix. Â No overrides Â Just used a nocd crack. Didn't use a virtual desktop or anything.
What does not
Nothing I could see.
What was not tested
The game window will move if you move your cursor all the way to the right and will show black area. This isn't a big deal. You just have to move it back. Hard to explain really. The screens I took don't show what you actually see when you are playing. They show the black area and part of the desktop. It's weird but doesn't affect gameplay.

To get multiplayer working you have to use by now the directplay libraries from microsoft, still (since 2006) no open source libraries for direct play that include libraries to open sockets and close to play games, so install winetricks:
(in ubuntu/debian) sudo apt-get install winetricks
and then exec:
It will download the directplay libraries from microsoft and install them, that's all, tcp/ip will work with direct connect.
