Most of the things work like expected but the game will run much slower than on windows.
The game engine is very poorly optimized and it runs slow even on windows but with wine the framerate is terrible even with lowest settings (i get around 20FPS).
How to get it running under wine
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
Ok the game should run fine now, if you get a "Game data failed to load" message please check here on how to configure wine to work with windows ODBC drivers. If the game displays a message complaining that windows is updating just move it out of the way and ignore it.
What does not
The game crashes randomly at times.
I did notice some graphical artifacts, ocasionally some polygons will be diplayed incorectly when rotating the camera around also in the distance objects will flicker a little and the sky texture will get black for a few seconds.
