Built-in IRC (Dynamix IRC server IS up), Starsiege Dedicated Servers tested and fully functional.
Switching back and forth between windowed (software rendered) and fullscreen (opengl rendered) mode with alt-enter works.
OpenGL performance seems to be superior to Windows, with "blackouts" happening rarely on NVidia card and very high framerates.
What does not
Installer makes minor glitch in config filenames in the shortcuts to dedicated servers. For example, KDE shortcut reads
setenv WINEPREFIX="/home/mobrien/.wine" wine "c:\windows\command\start.exe" "C:\Dynamix\Starsiege\launch" infiniteSpawn starsiege -s se ver_CTF.cs
When at the end it should be reading (at the end) -s server_CTF.cs
The missing "r" seems to be in all the dedicated server shortcuts.
In the human campaign, the last mission, "a spear in the dark" is split into three parts. For some reason, one or two squadmates may start to rapidly blink in and out of existence in the first part, even though they seem to be otherwise fine (even shooting).
What was not tested
Only a few missions remain in the Cybrid campaign not tested yet.
This is very close to gold... if it weren't for the wierd bug with the squadmates in "A spear in the dark, part 1" (Which really doesn't affect gameplay, but it is strange) it would be flawless. I've been using it in multiplayer in Linux heavily.
