Additional Comments

The instructions submitted by Corben in 2013 are impeccable, it works perfectly, like native.  Although I didn't log into a remote server, two are listed and I believe them to be valid and current.  I had none of the issues he spoke of.  I signed up simply to supply the following:

If, rather than using the arcane start command needed to start the Giants - Citizen Kabuto.lnk command, you wish to simply start Giants.exe directly, be sure to change to the working directory prior to something like "wine /Giants.exe, else the level save will not work.  Twice this has cost an entire day here, discovering (and rediscoverying) the problem :)

If you are not going to play over lan it's not necessary to run "winetricks directplay."  But it won't hurt anything.

On my installation (probably all current installations with GPatch1497F.exe) d3xof and d3d8 need native override.
