What works

Everything, but read below.

What does not

Nothing critical:

- Some errors at the end of the installer (, but the game installed fine and can exit the installer gracefully (i.e. no wine crash)

- Some minor graphical glitches using hardware rendering mode, visible at least on the beach in the first chapter of the campaign. Fixed by switching to software in the game's graphics options.

I think the glitches were also present on Windows but not sure about this.

- Laggy scrolling using hardware rendering mode, but this was the case on native Windows too. Fixed by switching to software.

Laggy scrolling
by Bogdan Marginean on Tuesday February 14th 2017, 7:34
In case you run into issues with the map scrolling being very laggy (especially when zoomed out), go to the graphics options in-game and switch to software mode. This is an issue I encountered on Windows too. The game runs 100% smooth afterwards.

There is some difference as far as the visual quality goes but you have to look really close to see it, I don't mind it at all.
