What works

Everything it seems. I was able to launch ZDoom through the ZDL launcher (which also works practically perfectly as far as I can tell, verson 3.2.2.2).

I have not tried it in "true" full screen, since whenever I've done this with my Intel GPU-based system, it tends to hang Wine. However, this is not an issue with ZDoom.

With Wine set to emulate a desktop of 1440x900 (other resolutions are available!), ZDoom worked immediately windowed or "full screen" (within the Wine window). It is fluid and playable. Launching additional WADs via ZDL also works fine.

What does not

Minor graphical glitches, smearing textures at certain times, and some sprites aren't clipped properly. However this could be due to the naff Intel G31-based GPU in this system. I am not sure if VSync is really working, either.

I don't think this is enough to downgrade the rating, because the glitches are barely noticeable. 

Workarounds

What was not tested

ZDoom has hundreds and hundreds of configuration options. Some of these - particularly if they are graphic-related - may not work as intended, but I haven't noticed any as of yet.

Additional Comments

I will go ahead and rate this platinum. Perhaps some will disagree because of the visual glitches, but I cannot say if these are down to my particular system. Ultimately this is ZDoom, possibly the most accessible and reliable Doom port out there, and it runs practically flawless under Wine 1.5.19. I feel this is enough to award it a platinum rating. Note: I am running Kernel Linux 3.2.0-35-generic with GNOME 3.4.2
