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.
