Everything I tested works very well including videos, campaigns and hotseat multiplayer. With a little fix listed below the mouse works well and you can change desktops to other apps while playing without a problem.
The game installs easily, does not require a cd crack. It runs well even at 1680x1050 res with the graphics on high quality. You do need to edit your profile after you've created one in the game to fix the mouse camera controls. Edit ~/My Games/Heroes of Might and Magic V - Tribes of the East/Profiles/
Also, to prevent an issue where the game stops responding after flipping to another app or desktop, you should edit user_a2.cfg in the profile directory listed above and change "app_always_active" to 1.
What does not
There is some mouse wheel oddness with zooming in and out, use the keyboard (ctrl+page up/down) instead. I haven't figured out how to fix this one with the input_a2.cfg file yet.
What was not tested
Network multiplayer was not tested.
Rating this as Gold since I haven't tested multiplayer over a network, otherwise I'd say platinum.
