Installing, patching to 1.6, running with No-CD patch, videos, gameplay (training, missions, campaign)
What does not
Nothing I know about
What was not tested
Running without No-CD patch (maybe I tested it some time ago, but I don't remember)
Multiplayer (Internet and LAN)
I had to use some tweaks to run the game properly. It deserves Gold though. There was trouble with mouse cursor "trapped" in center of screen. Problem was both in windowed and fullscreen. I had to use MouseWarpOverride=force in regedit. After it there was new problem. After starting game (getting in-game) mouse went down and right (character started rotating and looking down) and it was looking like there is no way to change it. I tried to run the game in virtual desktop (1024x768), because there wasn't any sign of this bug when virtual desktop was on, but the game was set to 1920x1080. The game (in-game) was running in that resolution, but window was decorated by KDE and not all was visible (lower ~50 pixels). Then I had the idea to run it in virtual desktop in 1920x1080 and here we are! The game is ok, mouse is ok and it looks like fulscreen (no window decoration, no system tray etc.) It would be good to write this down in the MouseWarpOverride section, so people can see it and run the game in that way! My ravenshield.exe settings in winecfg/display section: [ ] Allow DirectX apps to keep cursor inside window [x] Allow window decoration [x] Allow window manager to maintain windows [x] Emulate virtual desktop  x  (my native fullscreen resolution)

In recent enough Wine (>=1.1.3) Vitaliy Margolen has imported the mouse warp workaround. To use it add this registry key:
MouseWarpOverride = force
Note: if your mouse sensitivity is high enough the cursor might jump out of the game window if you move your mouse fast, you could prevent this by using slower speed in X and higher sensitivity in game but you'll lose some accuracy
Intro movies cannot be skipped. Only way to do it is to remove the intro movies permanently or to replace them with empty files (might produce better results). The correspondig files are Videos/Logos.bik and Videos/int/RS_Intro.bik. If you happen to have crashing problems with the intro videos, this also gets you into the menu.
Multiplayer works flawlessly.
Everything above was tested with Wine 1.1.3.
Punkbuster might or might not work. You will be kicked out of Punkbuster enabled servers without patching and can be marked as a cheater, so be careful!
See bug 9685 for more details and patches.
If the framerate is not smooth, try both of these:
wine reg add 'HKCU\Software\Wine\Direct3D' /v UseGLSL /d disabled
