-The game is fully playable without any blocking issues.
-Installing with mfc42 installed from winetricks works perfectly
-Custom content installs as expected
What does not
-Audio quality was noticeably worse.
-Performance isn't great.
-The Lutris branch of wine has proper audio.
-Performance can be fixed by using d9vk. But there is currently some visual bugs with that (d9vk 0.30)
What was not tested
-The installer (I extracted it)

As tested in WINE 1.1.26, HALO CE needs native MSXML4 to properly parse the "*.ksml" files in "\content\" dir.
An easy solution to this is getting WineTricks and install "msxml4" (winetricks.sh msxml4).
This bug is #19499
use -windowed argument to play.
