Selected Test Results (selected in 'Test Results' table below)
What does not
Sometimes it is necessary to kill pulseaudio in order to have a good sound (I think this problems relates with wine+pulseaudio since every other program works fine)
If I use directx9 i have sometimes (after a great battle) out_of_memory exceptions. Setting to directx7 solved it for me.
What was not tested
Everything was tested (long multiplayer& singleplayer sessions)
Installed from steam.
If you run over steam invisible font problem the easiest solution is to deactive dwrite.dll. Following steps are necessary:
1. $ winecfg
3. New override for library
4. Insert here dwrite
5. edit --> disable
Now when the game is installed try to start it. If you noticed a broken config menu don't worry - everything is changeable in rgl_config.txt
If you have a slow GPU it makes sense to set to Directx7. Just change the 'use_pixel_shaders' and 'use_vertex_shaders' attributes in rgl_config.txt to 0. This forces the game to run with dx7. You will also have a bad performance if you don't set force_single_threading = 1 in the rgl_config.txt.
If you have a optimus board (e.g. netbook with intel graphic+nvidia) you can either run steam with optirun (bumblee package) or primusrun (primus: https://github.com/amonakov/primus). primusrun is new and has some advantages. E.g. games like World of Warcraft run twice as fast as with optirun. But: Mount and Blade games are an exception. I have run into microlags so just use optirun to play it.
If you have sound problems (e.g. missing or glichting sound) change the settings of pulseaudio (view http://www.fuduntu.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=2572 for further details):
1. # nano /etc/pulse/daemon.conf
default-fragments = 16
default-fragment-size-msec = 50
I didn't run over mouse problems but if you have one just take a look at other reports (warband and fire&sword are all the same engine).
