The GOG version of the game. It includes both the base game and the Clone Campaigns expansion.
Everything except multiplayer.
What does not
Multiplayer does not work. Clicking create/join game immediately kicks the player back to the main menu. This is the same for both LAN or internet (direct IP) games.
Others have suggested winetricks directplay as a workaround, but this didn't work either. Creating or joining a network game hangs indefinitely on the loading screen. The screen says to "press ESC after 15 seconds" if creating or joining fails, but this does nothing. I left the game on this screen for approximately 10 minutes to grab a coffee and it was still on the screen when I came back.
You need to enable Emulate a virtual desktop in winecfg, otherwise the game crashes at startup. The downside is, unfortunately, the game will run in a fixed window size.
You can, however, mitigate this using the the community-made All-in-One patch, which has an integrated widescreen fix:
I was able to play the game at 1920x1080 resolution without issue. The main menus are always 800x600, but in-game will scale up to 1920x1080. I moved the window to the very top-left corner of my monitor so when it expanded it filled the screen.
What was not tested
The Zone.com multiplayer functionality as I'm pretty sure this has been obsolete since 2006.
