Retail CD release
Everything in single player. In multiplayer mode it works perfect if you became the host of the game.
What does not
Multiplayer on LAN, doesn't detect created games.
What was not tested
Installation, I copied my installation folder from windows. Multiplayer on Ubi.com.
Playing the intro videos, as I had already removed them from intro.xml, before running the game.
I used crack to avoid cd-check.

If you can't find the patch you're looking for at one of the update sites, try the other one.
If the setup program asks for 'setup.exe', kill it, and then run 'killall -9 IKernel.exe'
If the game does not allow you to choose a resolution higher than 1024x768, run regedit and add the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct3D, then add the string value VideoMemorySize and set it to the amount of video memory you have
