What works

App installs and runs quite fine, with some minor bugs. 

What does not

Using hotkey in fullscreen applications, such as games (i.e counter strike, guild wars) won't quite work. Sometimes sound won't work.

But i found quite good solution as far Guild Wars is concerned. I run the game in window mode, and  select by right-click on Vent window - "Always on Visible Workspace" - with that option, sound and whole voice communication works good. Also hotkey (push to talk) works fine.


What was not tested

- Only Ventrilo version 2.1.4 was tested
- Other codecs

Additional Comments

To have the App fully working we need to do 2 things after instalation. 1. From the Windows directory we look for file c:/windows/msgsm32.acm then copy it to ./wine/drive_c/windows/system 2. We edit file ./wine/drive_c/windows/sytem.ini We add line "MSACM.msgsm610=msgsm32.acm" And it will work fine.
