What does not
Steam Community & MOTD.
What was not tested
Can't think of anything.
Can't seem to see why some people claim the game doesn't work in D3D and OpenGL, and that it got others problems. The only problem with it out of the box, with any wine version (at least back to 0.9.44, did not test earlier releases), is that the MOTD and Steam Community doesn't work in-game, this isn't an issue at all, as the MOTD is not even realy used for anything, it's just a HTML page that it shows when you connect to the server, the window is shown, but it is just black where the HTML should be, steam community is possible to live without, and that should in my opinion not affect the rating of the game itself, as the game works fine, just steam that doesn't. Also works out of the box in both d3d and opengl, opengl gives a constant 100fps running on a amd 2000+ 32bit, 1gb ram and a nvidia geforce 7600 gs (agp), also on my gf's pc, an intel 2,8gz with 1gb ram and a geforce 6600.

The .lnk file that is created after install can be safely deleted. The .lnk file is used by Windows in case any special parameters have been set when an .exe file is run. If you have problems and suspect that you need the .lnk file for any reason, simply go into Steam, and right-click on the game that needs the .lnk file, and select "Create Desktop Shortcut". Â
The above applies to all .lnk files that are Steam based, including steam.lnk.
