Intro video will play, selection / mission / load screens will come up. Single player mission work fine and can join games in multiplayer with an updated 'servers.dat' file. Foreground sound effects work OK. Windowed screen works well.
What does not
Sound effects in background (hovering noises?) are slightly messed up in volume. Fullscreen occasionally crashes X. Graphical 'pointers' on HUD are partially missing (not essential). Some sound lag (seemingly caused by pulseaudio). Does not play music files on CD during game.
What was not tested
Only tested 2 missions and multiplayer
Had to install BZ 1.4 patch (necessary anyway) Put into Win98 mode (it has some issues on XP anyway) Had to update servers.dat in BZ directory (has to be done on any new install since Activision closed down their servers) In Wine config went for 'create virtual window' to sort out fullscreen problems Removed pulseaudio and installed ESound to get rid of lag

The anims directory needs to be removed or renamed before Battlezone will load
