Allmost everything - the game starts, saves, loads, everything works fine, there are varios random bugs, but they present in windows version too.
What does not
There is a bug, when viewing the main menu for the first time: menu items and background are invisible, exept the item, your mouse stands over. But after starting new game and canceling it everything is fine. Also, before starting and canceling new game you aren't able to change game settings or load saved game.
The game also fails checking the CD. We had to install the no-cd patch. It doesn't says anything at all (if the CD is good or not) - just keeps spining the cd-rom in drive.
What was not tested
The gameplay outside Sant-Monica, we played only about an hour.
Wine was installed from a debian package, using apt. We alsaw built wine 1.1.1 from sources and had completely same results, exept some more "fixme" messages.

If you get the following error and performance issues:
fixme:d3d_surface:fb_copy_to_texture_direct Doing a pixel by pixel copy from the framebuffer to a texture, expect major performance issues
Adding the following Registry key should help:
HKCU/Software/Wine/Direct3D: OffscreenRenderingMode = "fbo"
Also if you have a black menu when the game starts, or graphic errors, you can set the following Registry Key:HKCU/Software/Wine/Direct3D: UseGLSL = "disabled"
(this also increases the performance strongly)
(see http://wiki.winehq.org/UsefulRegistryKeys for further information)
To force antialiasing in the game, run this in a terminal:
wine /path/to/your/Vampire.exe -game Unofficial_Patch
