What works

Gameplay! The 2d rendering seems too slow for a 1997 game running on 2005 hardware, but it works and is generally playable.

What does not

Installation. The installer locks up and flatly refuses to do much at all. Copying the files from the CD doesn't help too much either, since the game checks a number of registry entries and the CD before proceeding.

Given the difficulty installing from the CD-rom, I resorted to using the version found at the underdogs abandonware site and supplementing it with files from the CD as appropriate.

Videos. Game will complain about being unable to find the vid interface, and wine complains that "err:amstream:IMediaStreamImpl_QueryInterface (0x1c53e8)->({f4104fce-9a70-11d0-8fde-00c04fd9189d},0x551b24), not found"

Scrolling the screen upwards in full-screen mode doesn't work. Windowed mode works, as does scrolling in the other three cardinal directions.

Helpfile. The main cc2.hlp file manages to render, but it doesn't get on well with wine's winhelp implementation so browsing it is impossible

Additional Comments

Cc2 really wants Tahoma fonts, but installing the msttcorefonts package on Debian seemed to make it happy. Wine spams a lot of "fixme:ddraw:IDirectDrawClipperImpl_SetClipList (0x1b8b98,(nil),0).stub!" messages when CC2 is running.
