While the previous games centered around the Valley of Mines and
Khorinis, Gothic 3 moves away from those locations to a newer, larger
environment. This story involves the continent of Myrtana, which is in
the midst of war. Orcs have enslaved the human kingdom with only a few
free humans living in the nearly uninhabitable icy northlands of
Nordmar, the southern desert of Varrant, and the mountainous forests of
the Middle Realm. Players can choose to join the rebellion and stay
true to the deposed human king, serve the Orcish usurpers in their
quest to topple the last remaining human stronghold, or choose a path
that serves their own ends. Every decision made has an impact on the
game world, and tips the in-game balance of power. Given the non-linear
storyline, every game is theoretically unique, with the player
ultimately deciding the fate of humankind. A number of NPCs accompany
the player throughout the game.
Selected Test Results (selected in 'Test Results' table below)
Everything works fine.
What does not
At the first start the game crashes and shows the "Where is the guru"-windows. To fix this problem copy the d3dx9_40.dll in your System32 folder.
What was not tested
On very high settings the game won't run smoothly.
I didn't changed my config file.
The problem with the mouse and the orientation issue, which prevents the user to rotate the protagonist accordingly is still present.
I forced the mouse override and enabled the "catch the mouse in fullscreen mode" but without any success. The result was that I couldn't load my save game due to the fact that the mouse position was always reseted to the middle of the screen.

Since I've installed the 1.3.28 version of Wine, the mouse cursor doesn't work fine anymore.
I can move the mouse in any direction as soon as the mouse cursor doesn't hit in the "background" the desktop borders.. ..after that i can't get the mouse move in one or more directions. This is very annoying since I have to use the keyboard to turn left or right.
Does any of you know any solution, or hint? I couldn't find a good set of words to find a solution on google. :-)
Sky: is there a way to get the sky "blue" instead of the "dark" one i have? :)
