What works

starting a game, completing the first mission

What does not

fullscreen (-->wine: virtual desktop), videos (-->disable them in ingame-options), level editor (its window doesn't update unless you drag it around, also no cursor shows up)

when placing a repair-workshop, the cursor symbol changes and the cursor may disappear or lag, so that's a bit tricky but not impossible


What was not tested

multiplayer, more than one campaign mission

Hardware tested

Additional Comments

a virtual desktop may be required if black bars obscure part of the interface in fullscreen-mode. if the game appears frozen (after skirmish/campaign start) try the in-game options (CRT-monitor icon) and toggle "software cursor". other wine-tweaks: a slightly smoother operation can be archieved via setting DirectDrawRenderer to OpenGL. setting "offscreen rendering mode" to "backbuffer" causes some glitches in the interface, but has the smoothest experience (requires OpenGL). unfortunately, one of them is that on scrolling around the terrain gets white, unless you click the minimap. my issues don't seem to be a regression, since using wine 1.6.2 didn't work for me either, just made things worse. using another gpu, e.g. the integrated graphics of a pc may resolve some of them (see other reviews) IG2 version 2.1, digital content from amazon (no disc) GPU: HD7730
