What works

Playing the game (campaign, skirmish)

EAX (on wine-staging) works well, meaning 3D positional audio when using headphones

What does not

The main menu / game runs at less than 1 FPS, like a slideshow, due to CSMT (Wine bug 44260). See below for a workaround.

Workarounds

Due to Wine bug 44260, the game will have horrible performance with CSMT on  (~1 FPS, basically a slideshow). You must disable CSMT in the registry / winecfg when running the game.

After CSMT was disabled, the game ran perfectly smooth.

Note: this issue was only reported on NVIDIA GPUs with proprietary drivers, it's possible you might not need this workaround.

What was not tested

Multiplayer

Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary
