Test Results

Selected Test Results

What works

  • Single player mode

What does not

  • Shadows
  • Very high graphical settings (there's a workaround)
  • DX10/Vista mode (the game freezes on start up when Wine Windows version is set to Vista)
  • Comparable to Windows performance - the game under Wine 2.0-rc1 is very very slow, specially when enemies start shooting at you

What was not tested

  • Multi player mode

Additional Comments

The Steam version of the game doesn't start because it cannot detect your internet connection, so a NoCD crack is required (Crysis v1.2.1 (x32) [MULTI5] No-DVD/Fixed EXE #2).

In order to unlock High visual settings an unlocker is required (Crysis v1.0-v1.2.1 DX10 UNLOCKER + PRIVATE SERVER PATCH + AMPHIBIOUS APC).

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO

Howto:
If you're using ATI hardware there may be even worse problems since their drivers suck (for now)

  • Use Wine 1.1.5 or newer with MouseWarpOverride=force. The mouse will not work properly in the menu. You will have to navigate with the keyboard after left-clicking once.
  • Put d3dx9_36.dll and XINPUT1_3.dll in windows/system32. You can get them from a DLL site like dll-files.com
  • Install the game and use a Crack on it 
  • Set OffscreenRenderingMode=fbo
  • Set Shaders to High, else you will get graphical problems
  • You will get extremely bright HDR. So add r_glow = 0 to My Documents/My Games/Crysis/game.cfg. Remove write-permissions to stop Crysis from butchering the file at every restart

Issues:

  • FPS are even worse than on Windows (~15 FPS on a 8600GT low settings except shaders). Don't even try to run the game on hardware lower than a GF8 it will not work!
  • Severe graphical corruption
  • Sound may vanish under some circumstances
  • Movies don't have sounds at all
  • Crysis will freeze whenever it feels like it 
  • FPS will drop to below 1 at some resolutions
  • Also FPS may suddenly drop at any point, usually accompanied by graphical corruption. Restart the game and reload the level to fix this
  • The patcher will not work in Wine
