What does not
The game crashes, as it can't find the Trilogy DVD. I guess, that some anti-piracy stuff breaks that.
What was not tested
Gameplay - game won't run

GTA2 has a hidden option to use Glide for video. 1. Set up your controls etc using GTA2 manager. 2. Install a Glide wrapper- I use http://www.zeckensack.de/glide/archive/GlideWrapper084c.exe . 3. wine regedit -> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> Software -> DMA Design -> Screen: set "rendername" (a String/REG_SZ) to "3dfx.dll" set "videoname" (a String/REG_SZ) to "dmaglide.dll" 4. If you open GTA2 manager again, you need to setup the registry keys again- GTA2 manager does not support Glide mode. 5. If you're using GTA2 v11 or greater, you will find the registry key in HKEY_CURRENT_USER instead of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. 6. Launch GTA2 directly, i.e. create a shortcut to start in the GTA2 directory and run wine gta2.exe . Because of this I believe the problem is related to the DIB engine. But it's been so long since I heard that information I can't be certain.
