Everything! Single player campaign, random matches, multiplayer matches, Steam overlay, Steam workshop mods, sound, good performance.
Build 58061 has resolved the multiplayer issues.
What does not
Running without -nostartup in the game options (black screen).
Final install when you run the game the first time may hang, in which case you can delete the *.vdf files and _CommonRedist directory from the game folder.
Launcher buttons have no text, upper left button launches the game.
Mouse is sometimes jumpy, making it occasionally difficult to select units or build walls accurately.
Achievements are unreliable (might not be a Wine issue).Â
What was not tested
Hosting a multiplayer game.
Start in Windows XP mode and use: winetricks vcrun2010 d3dx9_43 xact quartz Make sure to specify -nostartup in the launch properties or your map will not render. It should be possible to set some registry entries telling Steam that the install completed, rather than deleting the .vdf scripts, but I'm not sure what entries are needed.
