Gameplay, scenecut animation(Not using DirectShow and wmv), BGM playing, voice.
Need d3dx9 dll override(winetricks d3dx9)
What does not
Ingame movice(use the DirectShow to play wmv)
Game installer(fail to recognize the ISO)
What was not tested
1. You can install the game in windows and just copy to whole directory to Linux. Wine can execute WA2.exe quiet good. 2. You need to override all d3dx9(winetricks d3dx9) or the graphics will be broken. 3. Even the ingame moive can't be played due to the damn DirectShow API with wmv, you can play the movies using your favorate video player in Linux to play them directly. The movies for Introductory Chapter are in IC/ directory and Closing Chapter ones are in installation directory named mv???.pak. The mv??0.paks are in 720P resolution and mv??1.paks are in 704x480 resolution.
