F.E.A.R. Combat is a completely free (as in beer) standalone game, offering up the multiplayer component of the hit game F.E.A.R.
All you need to do is download the game, sign up for a CD key, and you can play some of the hottest action deathmatch around.
Old test results
The test results you have selected are very old and may not represent the current state of Wine.
Selected Test Results (selected in 'Test Results' table below)
Installing, running, changing settings, getting server list, connecting to server, loading game, menus, options, quitting
What does not
Mouse is extremely laggy.
What was not tested
The simple fact that the game relies so heavy on fast mouse twitching, and that it cannot deliver an updated mouse position but every 2-3 seconds at best really makes this unplayable.
No Single Player
by James on Sunday June 13th 2010, 18:37
I installed the game just fine. However when I launch the single player exe it tells me FEAR.exe has a problem and must shut down. But if I start multiplayer, I can get into the menu. change what I want and even go online and play the game.
So I am pretty confused. I did everything that was mentioned here. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Extra install possibly required

I successfully installed FEAR Gold (after winetricks-corefonts for CD-Key). Could run and get to the main menu. Starting a new game (single or multiplayer) would result in Wine hanging at a black screen. The solution was going to the FearGold/support directory and installing WMFADist.exe It's something about 'Windows Media Audio 7.1'.
F.E.A.R. : Combat Validation Code
by Jack Diaz on Friday October 30th 2009, 19:22
Does anyone know why I can't type when it ask for the Validation code? the first column of letter requires 4 but it will only take 3 and when I press R it doesn't show up I can press , . G and some other letters but R wont work on the first row nor will numbers work the cursor just blinks. Has anyone ran in to this problem?

ok, i downloaded the installer and went to install FEAR, it failed fairly quickly after running, iput that down to the fact that my "drive_c" folder is actually a second HDD and the permissions are a bit sus, so i unmounted that and the installer progressed alot further, it gets to the bit where you actually tell it to install then tells me i have insufficient HDD space, this is false, i have 110GB of space left on the drive i was trying to install to, i cant figure it out

As of now, FEAR Combat runs and exits silently without doing anything. I'd like to try to debug it further, but don't know much about wine's debugging options. I'd welcome any pointers or suggestions on the best debug flags for this sort of problem in a game.
