Installing on Windows, applying Groza's No CD patch and playing a skirmish without units blowing up in 30 seconds.
Game is a lot slower (without any speedfix) than on Windows, but is playable (I haven't tried the speedfix which must make it comfortable to play).
What does not
Installing, even with ra2inst script (Woldata.key and Conquer.dat are two required files the installer creates).
What was not tested
Network play, campaign
