Right now, it doesn't, as Wine doesn't _have_ a working DirectPlay 
implementation. However, Alessandro contacted me some time ago and was 
interested in starting to implement it. As I'm still busy working on figuring 
out the wire protocol used for dplay, I didn't get around to look at the 
programming side of things much.

Alex, what are you currently trying to do? I figure it would make sense to 
kill the needed dll overrides for dplay dlls one by one, dplayx.dll might be 
a good start to do so.

I'll be happy to help you with writing a test case for your current patch.
