What does not
At certain points, including after finishing any game, and after trying to connect to WormNET, mouse-clicks are not registered. This makes it impossible to play online, and to play more than one game without quitting.If there are any videos, I've not seen them.
What was not tested
Actual multiplayer play, since it was inaccessible.
I needed the hacked ddraw.dll, which was compiled with glibc 2.4, not available for etch, so I downloaded the .25 wine source, patched ddraw.c and compiled, then moved it into the WWP folder. I run the game in a virtual desktop, and it will change to 640x480 at the start. You can still change to other resolutions, and play in them, from the options menu.

2016-05-16 Admin note: the instructions below are extremely outdated and not likely to work in current Wine. They are left here as a starting point for anyone who may wish to update them.
The installer may encounter an error while copying files. If it does, run the setup program for the demo version, but abort it when the welcome screen appears.
