Running the game
What does not
Mouse lags ingame
What was not tested
The game installs and starts fine. In the main menu the mouse lags. If you run wine with "WINEDEBUG=-all" in the main menu it runs fluently but in the options menu it still lags. Gameplay does not work. If you start e.g. "Instant Action" The game will load but only the first frame is shown. After this, the game freezes.

The following is a short description of how to make Flanker launching. Simply install the recent wine Version. No patches are needed to make Flanker running. Install the game hereafter. Now open the registry editor.
Navigate: "HKEY_CURRENT_USER-->Software-->Wine-->Direct3D" Set the value of "DirectDrawRenderer" to "opengl".
Otherwise wine will complain that you need to do so ;) Now you can succsessfully launch the game.
The game now launches if you follow the instructions in the HOWTO note. In the main menu the mouse seems to be very slow and laggy. It is hard to hit the right button. The lag of the mouse can be decreased by starting the game with "WINEDEBUG=-all wine Flanker.exe"
In the main menu the mouse now runs fluently but still not in the options menu, there it is laggy again.
Another issue that appears is, that after a mission load the game will freeze. So the game is not playable yet.
