You know, while I'd love to support the Wine project a little more in
this, the little incompatibilities have kept me coming back to Cedega
despite the various issues I have run into with it here and there. It
does a fairly decent job on many games, and the newest version (which
is apparently Beta, though that wasn't obvious until it was already
installed, one of those issues...) works on a bunch of games that
didn't work previously.
What's in the 3/5 compatibility rating? I've played games that were
3.5-4 and the major obstacles were often the fancier graphics
features, so depending on whether it's listed as working it might
still do the job for you.
