What works

To make the game work i have done the following steps:

1. apply this patch  to wine`s source code and after that compile and install wine (it is an old patch but still works)

2. created a clean env someting like ./wine-crysis

2. used winetricks to install directx9, vcrun2005 and set MWO to force

3. started the game and set shaders to high and other options to low (no need to adjust permissions for the game`s cfg or to add r_glow=0)

To my surprise(remember is an old patch for wine 1.1.42) the intro to the game works well, it even has sound(it works also without applying the patch but crashes when the mission starts) and after that the mission loads. FPS with high shaders maximum i`ve got 15, more FPS can be gained using shaders to medium i got to 30 sometimes (be aware of graphical issues) or with the smallest screen resolution 800x600.

What does not

For me the installer does not work even in this version of wine so i have used a windows installation.


What was not tested

Multiplayer mode and the rest of the missions.

Additional Comments

Good progress so far for the intro. After the game intro, the mission tends to start before it crashes i can see the line "after 7 days" for more "time" than before(without the patch). Still not silver, still BRONZE. Tested using Nvidia Geforce 9400GT with 1024 mb of memeroy, using 260.19.12 video driver.

HowTo / Notes


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
  • 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


  • 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
