What works

Everything works, both single player and multiplayer.

Only issues are that the frame rate is not high, the game can pause or jerk when loading graphics and on start you might need to Alt-Tab until the game is in the foreground.  But it is playable and enjoyable.  This doesn't not effect the ability to do well in multiplayer games.

What does not



What was not tested

Install.  Should work as well as 1.4.1 though, see Homefront > 1.5.500001.  If you have problems then install using wine 1.4.1 and then switch to 1.5.17 to play.
