-Campaign (played some missions)
What does not
-screenshots of saved games in menu are broken
-speaking over in-game voice is not working
-Vanilla game is not playable - VCStarter 1.7Beta fixes this (bug 9337).
-I also installed directplay by winetricks (bug 33295).
-Also enabled "Fix crashes in singleplayer on Windows Vista and up (radiocalls)" in VCStarter (bug 43567)
What was not tested
Changes since Wine 2.3 (my latest report):
-fixed flickering VC and US soldiers (bug 42588) - reason why I changed rating from Bronze back to Silver.

Check your maps folder for number of downloaded maps. Game usually won't start when the maps folder contains more than about 500 maps (1000 files, since every map consists of two files).
Moving some of the maps into another folder (or deleting them) is the only working solution.
No it is not, but GameSpy support has ended. Vietcong now uses new master server: Qtracker. Add this line into your /etc/hosts (on your Unix system, not your Wine virtual disc):
You can also use online server list at vietcong1.eu.
Install directplay using winetricks:
See the corresponding bug report ( 33295 ) for more details. With that the (lib32-)gnutls library might be required to run the game.
