What works

I tested the first tutorial successfully including cut scenes - all working normally.

I tested the first scenario of the campain - cut scene crashed the game after a few minutes (unknown cause yet), restarted game and tried again, skipped cut scene and was able to play scenario without any issue.

What does not

Game crashed on first campain cutscene after a few minutes.

dxdx9 required

I had to install d3dx9 (via winetricks) for this to run. Without it, I get the following error on startup and a crash.
fixme:d3dcompiler:compile_shader Compilation target "fx_2_0" not yet supported

Even installing `winetricks d3dcompiler_43` did not resolve this error.
