What does not
What was not tested
Alt-tabbing works kinda. The game can go nuts for about 30 seconds and then all is well again. In a very long game alt-tabbing a couple of times ruined the game. It started going nuts and eventually the graphics became more corrupt and the whole map turned dark. Wine spewed out lots of GL warnings and a bit later the game crashed. Verdict? Alt-tabbing is still a dangerous thing to do here so you should save before doing so! That alt-tab crash happened in a game that I was playing for over 2 hours straight!!! No problems except for the alt-tabbing. Just FYI: Turning up the graphics to their maximum works fine.

Getting it to work:
The patcher won't display anything. It takes a quite a while, but it's definitely doing something!
This patch is essential, since it disables the (broken) DVD check
Starting with Patch 3251, the patcher might fail. To test it yourself, you will need Mono, gdiplus, dotnet20 and vcrun2005 (use winetricks). Good Luck.
If that doesn't work, try installing the patches in a virtual machine running Windoze or stick with 3220
Use a recent winetricks to install xact
You may also need to set your sample rate to 48000 in winecfg's Audio tab
If you're still running into problems, try starting the game with the /novalidate switch
Also, if SupCom complains about insufficient video memory or crashes very early into the game,
try creating the string HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct3D\VideoMemorySize with a value >64, e.g. 128
