What works

Everything works fine, once you use native donput.dll from  Using ATI Radeon X1300 with proprietary drivers for this test.

What does not

Newer ATI Drivers on Fedora Core 6 do not support AIGLX nor compiz.  After disabling both in xorg.conf, the game must still be run with setarch i386 -X wine Epic40k.exe (or if you prefer it to be in a tiny (640x480) virtual desktop, start it with with setarch i386 -X wine explorer /desktop=foo,640x480 Epic40k.exe)

Believe me, I have tried everything, including disabling prelink and exec-shield and even removing the NX bit with the kernel boot line. There is presently no easy work-around except setarch -X for wine, if you have newer ATI and recent distro. Some work is ongoing to fix wine and ATI so we shall wait and see. My nVidia machines do not suffer from this problem but I don't know if they work with this particular game yet.

The game will not start without a copy of dinput.dll.  Now, you could just copy from wine and re-name it to dinput.dll and stick it in the game directory. That works, but the mouse is pretty "sticky".  For best results, use the dinput.dll from
