Everything seems to work except in-game purchases.
What does not
The current Origin version will not function in WINE.
The game requires EA Origin to run. I could not get the latest version of Origin to run so I had to install Origin Legacy. You have to set wine to run Origin Legacy under Windows XP while running the Sims game under Windows 7/8/10.
What was not tested
Everything was tested. Many game expansions were added from both DVD and the Origin store. The items from the Origin store were purchased through a browser and then the game downloaded them since it is tied to the Origin account.
When legacy needs to be updated you have to manually uninstall it, download the new version from EA (The Legacy Installer) and then re-install it in WINE. Once the new version is installed Sims 4 will launch again.
