Installs, the included graphics plugin (Jabo's Direct3D8 1.6) produces windowed output. Nrage input plugin works with keyboard and my joystick (Intel Wireless series Gamepad - a standard USB HID input device). Games appear to play correctly (at least on start).
What does not
The program suffers from the inability to create child windows. Like in the screenshot, the GUI from the main window and the game window are forced into a single window resulting in artifacts. This occurs when being managed by the window manager, or emulating a desktop. Possibly related, trying to use full screen resolution crashes the program. Jabo's DirectInput7 plugin does not work. Most settings windows refuse to be resized and text does not display properly, as its the wrong size.
What was not tested
Since games are limited to windowed resolution and have artifacts, most games (Mario64, Zelda64, Star Fox64, Mariokart64, etc.) were only played for the intro. and first levels. It is possible wine specific issues arise later in gameplay, though unlikely.
Performance is very good, equal or better than Mupen64 for the games tested and limited primarily by the GPU. On ATI video cards, there are minor beige artifacts in addition to the child window artifacts. This is probably and issue with the ATI fglrx driver as similar artifacts occur in many native applications, and thus likely not an issue with wine.
