The game itself, and parts of its patching system (RTpatch.exe). It also appears to work on any graphics level, even when I set the environment to "Windows 7" in winecfg. Logging in works fine as long as you specify the appropriate configuration file at launch.
What does not
What was not tested
Anything apart from docking/undocking in stations while in game, and very basic flight, as it is nearly impossible to take part in PVP or PVE activities without the ability to aim and shoot with the mouse. This renders the game almost completely unplayable.
The XInput patch cannot be applied to wine-1.3.19, therefore rendering it void as a potential workaround for the issue. I really hope the mouse issue begins to clear up in the near future, though. Fallout III works great with Wine. Given Black Prophecy uses the same (well, albeit newer) game engine as Fallout III, it shouldn't be too hard to get it to work fully.

I just wrote a little Patcher since the official doesn't run in wine:
Just download the file and place it into your Black Prophecy Root Directory
It downloads and looks for your patch files in the (not existing) directory: Patches which will be generated at first use. If you've already downloaded some patches, I recommend you put those there.
If you have any advice for my script, just inform me, I'm not used to shell-scripts very much.
