FPS is extremely important in this game.
It is much easier to bunnyhop (which is essential for the games balance) with 100 fps, in Windows I get 111fps, in wine my fps is all over the place - but still completely playable to a non-competitive level.

I'm running on Ubuntu Edgy Eft, currently when I run NS the game ALWAYS crashes if I choose the marine side in regular NS maps (not sure about combat). If I select alien side it runs fine. I have no idea what is causing that, if marines it literally runs for a few seconds (under a minute, but duration varies) and then crashes out, if I play aliens I can play for hours and never have a problem (aside from the standing voice communication glitch). Any ideas on this?
It has happened under wine 0.9.32, 0.9.34 and now 0.9.35
my launch string is:
wine "C:\Program Files\valve\Steam\steam.exe" -novideo
