What does not
What was not tested
To correctly run the game install OPF CD and do not launch OPF install Resistance CD and do not launch OPF Run 1.96 update. And now you can lunch OPF resistance or OPF. Do not set game resolution on panel but set it in game, because the resolution set is not applied in the game. All parameters in the flashpoint preference panel works, except game resolution, set it in game. if your mouse don't work at the game start go to option menu with tab and enter. and activate the joystick in devices menu, it will work. Remember, I don't know why but if you launch OPF before the full install of the 1.96 update, the game won't launch or launch with many graphic bugs.

Install graphic card drivers, with native OpenGL. Do not enable TwinView, or dual screen.
On 64-bit systems, the 32-bit graphic driver libs need to be installed too, other wise the game wont start, complaining about missing DirectX.
Copy all files from a windows installation, as they are, to the wine drive.
(Contents of C:\Program Files\Codemasters\OperationFlashpoint)
Save your ID from a windows registry in a .reg file, with these two keys:
"Player Name"="Your Name"
Apply these registry settings in your Wine instance. Verify them, as you may need to set these manually within the regedit of wine.
Start the game with "wine FLASHPOINTBETA.EXE -nosplash [-mod=@YourMod] .."
Once the game started, start a wine task manager with: "wine taskmgr" and set the CPU affinity for the flashpoint process to a single CPU. Other wise there will be massive lag in multiplayer after a few minutes.
