Most DLL's used to extend functionality
All forms work
What does not
Random DLL's, mostly my own - changing to direct path and linking type does not work
Sound from Game Maker - can be worked around using an external DLL for sound
Renders at 0,0 of the monitor, not from 0,0 of the window. Sometimes, the game will render halfway up the window. Good X coordinate, bad Y.
Random "failed to get MCF handle" or something of the like, might be 'MFC,' will pop up now and then. I will then have to end the process through the system monitor.
The script editor will take a long time to parse the opened script into a formatted view. For scripts over 1000 lines, this can take up to ten minutes.
The minimizing problem from Windows is preserved here, but much more annoying.
What was not tested
Game Maker works perfectly now for my uses. The problem with the script editor is annoying, but bearable. The minimizing problem cracks me up, though, for some reason. If one is using this program with Ultimate 3D, the new version of Wine removes any problems with only half the screen being rendered, unless that one also happens to be using clipping planes.

To work around the copy-protection do:
dd if=/dev/zero of=/tmp/fake.img bs=512 count=1440
losetup /dev/loop0 /tmp/fake.img
ln -s /dev/loop0 ~/.wine/dosdevices/c::
More testing needed
