-The game installs fine. Although there was a bit of a problem switching CDs, the game will install if both the CDs are copied to the hard drive, and installed from there
-Also, the game will run to the splash screen, if a no-cd crack is installed. Also, you may need to do a chmod +rw -R on the C:\Program Files\Sierra folder.
-Sound + Graphics
-Credits (using Credits option in menu)
-Training +gameplay (using Training option in menu)
-Play Quick Mission + gameplay (using Play Quick Mission option in menu)
What does not
-Game sometimes crashes on startup
-Mouse cursor is constantly relocated to midle of screen in every menu.
-Gameplay has lot lower FPS compared to Windows
-After exit Wine do not restore resolution
What was not tested
-did not use non default settings, native dll(s) or Wine patches.
-Installed with Fedora Core 4
-Only tested few minutes game play
Because of "mouse cursor recolated in midle of screen bug" Career option in game menu was not tested and rest(Instant Action, Quick Mission Maker, Join Game, Host Game and Setting options was only clicked once just to see that it bugs same way as main menu)
If anyone can help get this application to work, it would be greatly appreciated! NOTE: running tested by killertux

You can use the Lutris script if you don't want to go through the hassle of setting up your own Wine Prefix for the software. It assumes the GOG version, but I'm sure it works with any version.
