What works

> Everything that matters

What does not

> Videos playback (native amstream/quartz/dsound did not fix this). They are not a big deal though, and consider they don't work in windows either.

> Some sound effects do not play at all in many cases (gun sounds, base alarm, inventory sounds)

Workarounds

What was not tested

> Multiplayer

Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU: Intel
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

> Running with a native dsound.dll completely solves the sound effects issue (though the version pulled by winetricks causes the sound to break even more). I used version 10.0.10586.0 - 32 Bit (x86) from this website. Put it in C:\windows\syswow64\ and added an override in winecfg.

> Widescreen patching is working and highly recommended

> To avoid fullscreen resizes between game and menu you can either emulate fullscreen window in winecfg or enable the games windowed mode

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO

It is recommend to use Wine 1.8  

1. To enable movie playing, you need to install additional libraries: 

   $ winetricks amstream quartz dsound


2. Pressing the ESC button during play to get the menu the game is not shown full screen anymore. To fix that I changed a few settings in the Wine configuration (tab Graphics)
- Enabled:
    Automatically capture the mouse in full-screen windows
    Allow the window manager to decorate the windows
- Disabled:
    Allow the window manager to control the windows 

Emulate a virtual desktop (is default)

Movies playback

This needs some native DLLs, install them with the command "winetricks amstream quartz dsound"

Erratum: sadly dsound introduces sound issues so this is not a valid solution for movies.
Multiplayer needs DirectPlay

Multiplayer requires native DirectPlay, install it with "winetricks directplay"
