Install created desktop icon that worked for launching the game.
Sound worked perfectly.
OpenGL mode in 1280x960 resolution worked perfectly in full screen play.
Cheat codes and -console and -dev flags.
Heavy background CPU utilization only slowed HL's frame rate.
What does not
Multitasking such as leaving HL to do other tasks can cause HL to lock up. This only happens 10% of the time. This is very minor bug.
Opening screen renders in the upper left corner of the console and cannot be moved. Doesn't render in fullscreen.
What was not tested
Graphics mode resolutions below 1280x960.
This is very close to platinum. Only reason I do not give it a platinum rating is I'm guessing the opening menu rendering strange would annoy some people.

This is the result of an invalid screen depth reported here: 08069948:Call gdi32.GetDeviceCaps(00000088,0000000c) ret=00412a24 ^^^^^^^^ 0x0c == 12 == BITSPIXEL 08069948:Ret gdi32.GetDeviceCaps() retval=00000018 ret=00412a24 ^^^^^^^^ 0x18 == 24 bpp
Most probably you're not running X11 at 16 bpp. Run "xdpyinfo" to check that. Or maybe you have set "ScreenDepth" in the wine config file ? (and of course to a setting that HL doesn't want, i.e. != 16 !) And if you set ScreenDepth to 16, then it might still yell a "wine: Depth 16 not supported on this screen." at you. This is probably because your 32 bpp screen is not capable of multi-depth. You *need* to use a 16 bpp screen mode in this case, I think. FIXME: maybe problem hints should go into the LHL HOWTO instead...
