What works

Demo install fine, game loads and let start a scenario or the tutorial. Had to run the game this way to fix the problem with multiprocessor games.

taskset -c 1 wine DarkDemo.exe

What does not

After choosing a hero and setting a build queque, game gets unresponsive as the mouse no longer works, although pressing Atl+F4 closes the game as expected.


What was not tested

Couln't play very much this way...
