I'm in the process of releasing a file system with Wine 3.1. It definitely broke a few programs. So far I verified that Age of Empires Demo also won't install under Wine 3 on a real Linux box. But it also fixes some programs. WinTrek no longer has drawing issues. I tried Wine 3.2/3.3, but my programs were 10x slower and I'm not sure why. I guess it will be like Play on Linux, I will have to support multiple Wine versions in order to support more games.
As for Windows 1 and 2 compatibility, that is unfortunate they dropped support in Wine 1.3. Currently with the way I do things, Wine 1.4 is the lowest version I can handle because that is when they implemented their DIB driver. My Winex11.drv replacement doesn't handle palettes, fonts, blending, etc, so Wine will fall back to the DIB driver to handle those cases. Basically Wine just hands me a bitmap and I display it.
