I followed the instructions on WineHQ and got the game installed, but when I run it, it looks like this

enter image description here

and the whole screen occasionally flickers. Does anyone know why, and if I can fix it?

You're using Intel graphics and the current open source driver doesn't have what Halo demands. It works great on AMD and Nvidia hardware. I too have been trying to get Halo to work on my Intel laptop.
