copy protection,sounds, music, gameplay, etc. The game is VERY playable on recent wine.
I tested both Retail settlers 2 and the Vikings Addon. They both worked flawless with the d3dx9_29.dll file.
What does not
There is a little glitch when i set shadows to 100%, setting the slider a bit left (to high quality setting 75% quality), solves the problem. Other then that i have found no problems with game so far.
What was not tested
I ran the game on 1600x1200 resolution on gf 8800gts - it was very fast unless i zoomed to max (it slows on windows too). Got great performance and great graphics. Almost comparable to windows (not sure a bout water refraction shaders)
