It would if the game didn't rely on Steam which no longer works with
the older versions of Wine.

I think the first version that Steam works with again is 34 and the
last version NS2 works with is around 40 so using a version between
the two lets the test engine work.  I currently have it working at 1
FPS using Wine 1.1.39.

What needs to happen now is that the issue causing the game to stop
functioning with the latest Wines needs to be identified and fixed.
Then the cause of the major slow down between 33 and 43 needs to be
identified and fixed.  Then NS2 should work fine~ I couldn't find any
further issues.

The Editor is another story unfortunately.  I'm not familiar with GDI
so I am unsure how serious this is but the app crashes right after it.
 If you know anything about GDI feel free to implement it!
