Just msiexec /i SteamInstaller.msi and install it from steam.
Required xact_jun2010 from winetricks. Normal xact works as well but then sound does not work in game.
I think you don't need to use d3dx9. If you do use it, you have to set d3dx9_43 to "native then builtin" for it to load.
Campaign, challenge, deck editor all work.
What does not
Multiplayer gives an instant "Connection failed". It tries to load pbcls.dll and a few more which don't exist. I believe those are for Punkbuster which is known not to work.
Changing resolutions/full screen mode can only be done in virtual desktop.
Cursor acts weird in fullscreen, often missing clicks or moving suddenly.
The game crashes with a font related callback every 10 games or so, at the winning/losing screen. winetricks allfonts did not help.
There's short lockups (3-4 seconds) once in a while
What was not tested
Tested pretty much everything by now.
