Single player works fine through Steam.
What does not
Nothing so far.
What was not tested
Only changed required to winecfg is setting windows version to Windows 7. No need to export WINEARCH=win32, the default just works, even on x86_64. No need for anything from winetricks. Gecko was installed when wine asked for it. An audio problem with wine 1.3.35 and earlier prevented music to play correctly. Videos were playing fine, but the menus audio was choppy and no audio was present in game. Bug #29243 was fixed in 1.3.36 ( http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=29243 ) and thus worked. Only other version working (not affected by the bug) is 1.3.30.
