Playing in story mode and galactic conquest mode.
What does not
Online multiplayer. (The GameSpy service has ended, see: http://www.gamespy.com/)
Playing in fullscreen mode (see extra comments).
What was not tested
Local (LAN) multiplayer.
Once a battle starts, only a small part of the game is visible in a window on the top-left of the screen with the rest of the screen black. To work around this, add "/win" to the launch options in Steam (right-click > Game Properties > Launch Options) Loading takes significantly longer vs. Windows installation, but still loads correctly. Online multiplayer no longer functions because the service used has been shut down. This is not a problem with Wine.
