Everything works. It's exactly as working under Windows as long as the correct installation procedure is followed. Since the implementation of WoW64, no separate 32bit environment is needed anymore (it won't hurt) but you still need the VB6 runtime (see workaround). Make sure winetricks is installed as well before installing BK. I could still get the program to freeze with the default settings but only after a certain amount of time. There's a workaround for this by setting options as outlined below.
What does not
BK7 will not run without the VB6 runtime dlls installed (errors).
BK7 will not be able to access data on a mounted drive. Local drives and USB disks are no problem.
BK7 will freeze if one of the options in settings isn't set to the specific value.
wine bksetup7E.exe(or whatever file you downloaded to install/update BK)
What was not tested
So far everything is tested in everyday use of BK.
Tested BK version 7.5.9
