Now I wonder if it's really the same patch...
Are patches used by POL-compiled Wine packages described somewhere?

Also, I found a copy of wisotool that still had Empire Earth entry in it, but it doesn't seem to do anything special (to native libs, no tweaks)

Does wistool make it work? I couldn't find much there.

The patch is here(on my list above):
http://wiki.winehq.org/Bug6971

I'v tried wine 1.3.34 and wine 1.3.34_rawinput2. They both have the same bad mouse behavior.

The effect is this(about for x or y):
12" mouse movement-> 1" on screen

Wine changes absolute movement to relative. So, changing the scaling should be the solution in the "mouse.c" wine source code. I'v done programing, but it will take me some time to figure out how it works. The patch code changes specific things related to ABS vs REL mouse positioning. So, it will help to look at it.

I can't see what values the mouse makes. So, I need to print values. Do you know how? Also, adding a registry entry "mouse sensitivity" to make it flexible for any game. I couldn't find anything in wine.

This should be cross-posted elsewhere.

I'm making progress on the custom build. I'v figured out the line to patch. Adding a varible will more complex but possible. I'm learning how to compile wine. Once I do, I'll be able patch and test with the EE script.

The xinput trick seems to work; It'll be hard to automate though, as you have to determine what pointing device should have its profile set to "linear" (or could they all be set temporarily?)

Here's my best shot:
