Anyone got SEV working in Wine?

I managed to get the install to go off the disk into Wine and the patcher .exe to run, but and the launcher menu and then the main menu come up. Once I get there though, launching a game or anything just silently fails and the main menu doesn't even disappear. Anyone else have this problem? Is there a winetrick or DLL override I'm missing?

Sorry for the general question, but it looks like the regular SE forums are being replaced and it directed me to post here.

Yes, I got se5 working in wine. Wine > 1.5 works with serious tweaks, wine 1.7.24 almost 'just works'. Try it with 1.7.24 and see if you get the menu. If you need help getting it working, shoot me a PM with details and I'll see what I can do.

Note that I'm still having problems getting the balance mod to work in multiplayer with windows players, it complains about datafiles not matching the host. Stock and other mods don't have that problem.
