As far as i can tell, everything
What does not
What was not tested
Update to latest version first. This can be done using the guides below. I used the helper prog. Had to install visual studio redistribute as well, and had to run the full directx9 redistribute in order to get it to work. There was a DLL missing for the sound. But that too can easly be downloaded. Last note: The game is a bit bitchy when it comes to the graphical settings, so you might need to trick it into thinking it's got a native resolution window. This can be done with the command: "wine explorer /desktop=foo,1024x768 ForgedAlliance.exe"

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
