For working music, the following DLLs need an override with the "native" version (Microsoft's binaries):
The easiest way is to use winetricks:
$ sh winetricks directmusic
winetricks sets more DLL overrides than necessary. Remove the override for 'dsound', which would otherwise cause problems:
Azerty layout has numbers accessible with the shift key so switching weapons was broken and there is nothing in the settings to change that.
The workaround was to switch to another layout using : setxkbmap us
Changing it in the Gnome 3.22 menu didn't work.
This is covered by bug #30984.
