What does not
Possibly nothing. What I did test worked.
What was not tested
I bypassed the window manager and desktop by passing the game executable as an argument to xinit. xinit /usr/local/bin/wine /home/ben/.wine/drive_c/Warlords_Battlecry_III/Battlecry\ III.exe -- :1 -xf86config xorg.conf.wbc3 Preliminary setup. ------------------ I ran winecfg then ... enabled alsa sound set Windows version to 98 added dll overrides (native, builtin) for the following DLLs: dplayx, dpnet, dpnhpast and dpwsockx updated the Wine registry by running 'wineprefixcreate' created /etc/X11/xorg.conf.wbc3 setting up the resolution as follows...

Update to version 1.03 to get rid of the copy protection.
Place the DLLs in this archive
in Wine's windows/system32 directory. Then, start winecfg and add dll
overrides (native, builtin) for the following DLLs: dplayx, dpnet,
dpnhpast and dpwsockx.
After that, update your Wine registry by running 'wineprefixcreate'.
If you are unable to connect to other players when selecting LAN TCP/IP, use the TCP/IP Internet option. This is a problem on Windows, too.
