What does not
What was not tested
multiplayer. Also, I just started playing again after a long absence so I don't know if any problems will occur later in the game.
The InstallShield bug appears fixed with 1.1.42. In order to compile and run Wine under Slackware64, which is pure x86_64, you must first create a true multilib Slackware64. see: http://alien.slackbook.org/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=slackware:multilib

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.
2015-01-31 Admin note: the following was extracted from a user comment made in 2008 and may not be relevant to current Wine.
"ln -s default.tot default.tot"
which creates a cirular symlink from default.tot to default.tot
