Playing the game up to the mission with the airplanes at the end of the desert.
What does not
The videos at the beginning of the game do not work.
The graphics were glitched until this commit in wine.
Use LI2-Mod-Manager to apply the `No Intro Videos` patch. (See the How To section below for instructions)
I also applied the `Load Screen Fix` patch to make the loading screens a lot faster, but this is not necessary to run the game.
What was not tested
Finishing the game.
To make the music work make sure to install directmusic (using winetricks). Which seems to require a 32bit wine prefix.
Also set the library override for dsound to builtin to fix stuttering sound.
To prevent the game from adapting your screen resolution, emulate a virtual desktop with resolution 1280x1024 (The highest resolution the game can handle)
