There's a compatibility list of WINE applications, Google for it. It
may address your questions.
I'm not sure how well supported ActiveX is under WINE, but my
understanding is that a lot of FPS games use this.
You're also generally best off installing the game under legacy MS
Windows, then accessing it through WINE. While WINE allows you to run a
lot of apps, the installers frequently _not_ supported. Bass ackwards
as that seems.
