Everything works !!
What does not
Game crashes after you apply changes to video settings, but don't worry since the settings get saved.
I couldn't get the game in widescreen mode, which is possible in windows using a patch.
Also the game dont resize the screen after exiting.
But there is workaround for it just run xrandr -s 0 in terminal. or better still make keyboard shortcut for that command.
What was not tested
I got Nfs MW 1.3, installs and runs Flawless in Vector Linux The graphics are waaay brighter and much faster compare to other linux distributions installed in my system.
The game play response is much much faster compare to windows running in other partition.
Also I am using lowly integrated Intel GM45 graphics on my Dell 1545 laptop.(which is definitely not known for 3D gaming).
Overall I give thumbs up wine in Vector Linux.
P.S.: you need to enable S3TC compression in your 3D dri configuration.
BE SURE to Override d3dx9_26 , d3dx9_36 dlls in your winecfg for playing this game.
(Just copy the above 2 dlls into the nfs game folder )
DONT INSTALL FULL DirectX it will make the game slower.
keyboard input lag
by Triffid Hunter on Wednesday November 16th 2011, 10:03
I was experiencing a problem where every few seconds, the keyboard would get stuck for up to a second. The game itself would keep running, with frustrating results! After some googling, I found some related stuff for WoW.
In short, running 'xset r off' before starting the game solved the issue for me.

left arrow on keyboard is pressed all the time
by saeed hardan on Thursday January 13th 2011, 5:27
the game starts nice fast and everything , but it like the left key is pressed by itself all the time , when racing the car leans left and if you then press right arrow it just goes straight (means i cant go right ever)
Confirmation of startup crash
by Nicolas Krzywinski on Monday June 21st 2010, 11:48
I can confirm the startup crash with current versions:
Lucid 10.04 with kernel 2.6.32-23
1. Installation works (from original CD with game version 1.2)
2. Update to v1.3 works
3. Startup intro and video and welcome blabla works
4. Creation of game profile at startup works
5. Crash after loading game profile
Overriding d3dx9_36 makes no difference - no single output line is altered.
The output tells something with eventlog.
The exact crash and output is reproducible and immediately after clicking on "proceed" button after game profile load.
