What works

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).

Additional Comments

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.

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO
­Starsiege ­HOWTO

Installation

Run 'setup/Setup.exe' on the disc (buddy disc in the two-disc version), being sure not to register or auto update.

Patching

If you are using the older two-disc version, you will have to apply the 1004 patch.

http://www.sierrahelp.com/Files/Patches/MetalTech/Starsiege(s1000to1004_usa).zip

Also, you'll probably want to apply the NOCD patch.

The original master server is not available, but the community maintains one for those who still want to play online.

Issues

The installer is old, and may crash in more recent distributions. See http://wiki.winehq.org/PreloaderPageZeroProblem.

The game may often start minimized.

The default pause key is NUMLOCK, and if unchanged, the game will pause on any key press while NUMLOCK is active. Change this key binding, or toggle NUMLOCK.

With 3D acceleration enabled, texture overlays (like pavement on a section of terrain) will not render, and the game will start in windowed mode.

Pressing ALT+ENTER to toggle between fullscreen and windowed mode is not recognized. To change the screen mode, set "$pref::GWC::SIM_IS_FULLSCREEN" to "True" in '[installdir]/defaultPrefs.cs'.
