What does not

(not really needed as you can use Mac Screenshot Function in game that works)
Receiving Server List fails!
Adding specific Server-IP fails!
(can fixed with Winetricks directplay see additional comments)
Hosting a game crashes the App!
One can use Winetricks' directplay script to receive Servers:
sh winetricks directplay
What was not tested
Voting Maps online.
The game needs DirectPlay 8. You Can use workaround via Winetricks.
Network Ports needed: 34567 & 23458
Dedicated Server/Host Game
One important point is DirectX still required in the machine. The game doesn't start graphics and sounds but it uses the DirectPlay API to deal with network stuff.
This game uses the TCP/IP port number 23458 to communicate, so if you want to configure your firewall to host a match you can allow this port number.
GameSpy servers are down but not needed for game. Also installation of GameSpy is not required to joining a server or playing the game off or online!
