What works

Installation requires wine to be set to windows 98 mode, but the game itself will work regardless of settings. Entire single player campaign works flawlessly. High resolution mods work although some caused errors on my system. I played through the whole campaign using the 1280x1024 mod.

Single player missions also work fine. All audio and graphics are fine, FMV runs as expected.

What does not

Game will not install if wine is not set to windows 98
