I was curious if that patch fixes Empire Earth, so I tried it, but it fails to 
create a new evdev mouse and falls back to the x11 based mouse. It seems that 
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\HARDWARE\DeviceMap\PointerClass does not exist. I've run 
wineprefixcreate and made sure I have full access to /dev/input/*, do I need 
anything else?
