What works

* Installation: This is a bit tricky.
- You must have a softlink from dosdevices to your dvd drive so you can swap out disks during installation. For example: wine "d:\LaunchBF.exe"
- You must "alt-tab" to gain focus on install windows to enter serial number.
- Sometimes, you much "alt-tab" to focus on install windows to press "enter" on your keyboard because clicking "next >" with the mouse doesn't always work.

* Gameplay seems to work using the following commandline which reroutes output to speed things up: wine "c:\Program Files\LucasArts\Star Wars Battlefront\GameData\Battlefront.exe" -opengl 2>/dev/null

What does not

* Audio/ Sound/ Music: Tried both Alsa and OSS configs in winecfg. No luck hearing anything. Tried hardware emulation; no luck.

* Speed: It can be REALLY slow to startup and to go from main menu to gameplay

* Stability / Consistency: Sometimes game textures show up and sometimes they don't. Also, game will crash if too much CPU is required

* CD Authentication: Wine could not authenticate CD; so I had to use no-cd "patches"


What was not tested

* Multiplayer
