Additional Comments

Do not be discouraged by the "garbage" ratings. This game runs with no issues for me. If this for some reason does not work for you, The comments have useful info for getting the game running.
I personally get better performance by disabling GLSL support, you must set mouse warp override to force.

With above packages installed, i am able to play, very good performance too, i am impressed, i range 30-65 fps on High settings at 1080p, It does go higher, but only when you look at the sky or when you're in an area that isn't very populated. avg is about 40.
Check your fps in game by opening the game console, and typing r_displayinfo 1
This is all I to run this game, runs very well!

If you're using ATI hardware there may be even worse problems since their drivers suck (for now)

  • Use Wine 1.1.5 or newer with MouseWarpOverride=force. The mouse will not work properly in the menu. You will have to navigate with the keyboard after left-clicking once.
  • Put d3dx9_36.dll and XINPUT1_3.dll in windows/system32. You can get them from a DLL site like
  • Install the game and use a Crack on it 
  • Set OffscreenRenderingMode=fbo
  • Set Shaders to High, else you will get graphical problems
  • You will get extremely bright HDR. So add r_glow = 0 to My Documents/My Games/Crysis/game.cfg. Remove write-permissions to stop Crysis from butchering the file at every restart


  • FPS are even worse than on Windows (~15 FPS on a 8600GT low settings except shaders). Don't even try to run the game on hardware lower than a GF8 it will not work!
  • Severe graphical corruption
  • Sound may vanish under some circumstances
  • Movies don't have sounds at all
  • Crysis will freeze whenever it feels like it 
  • FPS will drop to below 1 at some resolutions
  • Also FPS may suddenly drop at any point, usually accompanied by graphical corruption. Restart the game and reload the level to fix this
  • The patcher will not work in Wine

Crysis WORKS!!!

For those of you who given up on Crysis in Wine, it actually works!

I am running Crysis with High settings and resolution 1680x1050 with a patched version of Wine 1.4-rc5 in PlayOnLinux.

Here is a step-by-step guide:

I can't post test results here because Wine admins won't allow patched vesions of Wine or even PlayOnLinux. So other versions of Wine crash because of a memory leak. This doublebuffer patched version fixes the memory leak.

Wine 1.6-rc4

Confirming that the same errors still exist with Wine 1.6-rc4

I can skip the cutscenes with spacebar and it continues, even to the point where I'm parachuting out of the plane, but then crash.
Who knows if the memory leak will ever be fixed.

I thought about using the custom Wine with the double-buffer patch, but I really want to use a modern Wine version instead.
