TrackMania United Forever
Most graphics settings, all in game features worked. Sound is fine.
What does not
Nothing i tried failed. Multiplayer works but fps is a little too low using the pc3 shaders, even pc2 was slightly glitchy.
What was not tested
Post process fx and all the other extra fx stuff that can be checked on the side of the advanced graphics options cause who needs any of that stuff anyway. :D
Disappointed that pc3 shaders are unusable in multiplayer and pc2 is even borderline. I have a geforce 8800gt and the current nvidia drivers installed along with a high end dual core and 4GB of ram so my system is perfectly capable of playing this game with high graphics settings. Need to hit enter 2x when saying something in chat. Interestingly, not sure which wine version fixed this but it appears that perhaps the audio is now functional without having to add the openal file to the game folder. I installed using steam and have no issues with the audio, works just fine.

In the config menu you need to set "PC1" or "PC0", all above will hide windows and make the game unplayable.
Also you will have to set texture quality below "High", otherwise a map is loaded but does not start or will randomly hang up at the beginning.
These are experiences I have made, so they might not be the same for everyone.
Get the sound working
To get working the sound you can try to follow the instructions by david96 (modified by Lauri Niskanen)
There may be some music problems after all these steps, so we need a fix for those.
Also you can install this game by Steam using this link. I don't tested this way using wine.
