I have fully played through the game in an earlier version of Wine without issue, have tested for a short while using this version of Wine (the settings tool, tutorial, starting a new game, loading a savegame & playing for a bit, as well as free ride mode) and it still seems to work just as well.
In a previous report a user reported that this game wouldn't start unless winegstreamer was disabled - I did not encounter this issue on any of my systems but disabling it doesn't seem to break anything so it's probably best to disable it just in case (I experienced only a couple of crashes during my playthrough and I believe those were due to game bugs).
What does not
What was not tested
I've not done a full playthrough with this version of Wine, but I've fully played through this using earlier versions without issue and there is no reason to suspect that this may have changed.
This report is based on my notes and testing during the creation and maintenance of my wrapper for the GOG version of this game:
I used Behar's widescreen fix: https://thirteenag.github.io/w... - an override for dinput8 (native,builtin) is required for it to work.
