What does not
What was not tested
I installed VTMB in a clean wine-prefix and applied the fan-patch 7.3, which fixes many issues of the game itself. Furthermore I had no problem with the copy protection of the DVD version, on the contrary: the game does not even bother to ask for the DVD. And I did only apply the patch mentioned above.

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
