Running the game in Glide/3dFX mode with a wrapper
Movies and sound work perfectly. You can actually play the game now.
What does not
Direct 3d mode. There is still an open bug on this. Software mode also does not work.
There are some visual transparency problems when running in 3dfx mode, you can see through some doors, etc.
What was not tested
Beating the whole game. I am also using a NoCD patch for convenience.

Currently, as of wine 2.4, the game cannot run using Software mode or Direct3D. It will crash shortly after starting the game.
What does work is 3dfx mode. You will need to install a 3dfx/glide wrapper in your wine installation for this to work
This isn't a mouse game! It looks like there should be a moving cursor in this game, however there is not. So don't think wine's input isn't working.
Use aswd for movement and the number keys for inventory/weapons. The spacebar activates whatever you're currently holding and the tilda key puts away whatever you're holding. Sometimes enter is used to active items, other times spacebar.
If you move you game folder from one machine to the next, for whatever reason, moving the Saves folder isn't enough. You need to do a fresh install of the game, move the Saves folder into the new installation and then copy the file in /Bin/stgo.pgo from the old location into the new location. It contains references to the save files for some reason and the game won't recognize your old save games without this one file.
