What works

Game installs without issues, but I had to turn of Compiz using compiz-switch or else I get black screen and a crash after a short time. 3D acceleration has to be turned on for the game to run. It can work in a window or full screen, but in the latter case the image is streched on my widescreen. Resolutions 800x600 and 1024x768 work fine and probably others as well, haven't tried them.

What does not

Sound in the game is very bad except during the starting menu screen. Sound in my other Wine applications works without issues.

HowTo / Notes

Multiplayer via Directplay
Mentioned in a comment by zsolty_szasz:

Multiplayer can work, but requires some setup first.

The problem is with the current DirectPlay implementation. Read here how to set it up: http://wiki.winehq.org/DirectPlayGames

To get multiplayer working for games that use a DirectPlay version prior to 8, place the following DLLs:
dplayx.dll, dpnet.dll, dpnhpast.dll and dpwsockx.dll in this archive in WINE's windows/system32 directory, then add DLL overrides (native,builtin) with WINECFG.

HOWTO
In case of any problems be sure to see the instructions on http://wiki.winehq.org/Infinity_Engine_Games

cd into the BG-install directory then cd there into temp/

now

"ln -s default.tot default.tot"

which creates a cirular symlink from default.tot to default.tot
