Additional Comments

you need those 2 patches others mentioned, 1 for mouse escape issue, 1 for the CTD - - Don't bother with the crash message with 64-bit wine during install, although you will get dozens of them, don't close them, and wait the installer to finish. Wine thinks it crashed, but it didn't. Also you could just install&patch in windows then move the game to Linux partition. Here are my specs: intel core 2 q6600 @ 3Ghz geforce 9600 GT 4 GB ddr2 RAM Intel x25-v 40 GB SSD I used this winetricks (psoted by another tester) : d3dx9 d3dx9_26 d3dx9_28 d3dx9_31 d3dx9_35 d3dx9_36 d3dx9_42 d3dx10 d3dxof devenum dinput8 directmusic directplay directx9 dmsynth fontsmooth-rgb quertz nocrashdialog the game has absolutely no graphical glitches, runs as it should, although with very bad performance. No matter how low res and low graphical options i use, when im outdoor, the framerate drops to 8-15 fps. Although i use High settings with shaders set to medium in windows and play with 20-30 FPS, here I never reached 20 FPS with everything on low. (This is at FullHD resolution) Indoors, where are less object to draw, it has 20% less preformance than windows, so its quite good, i can achieve 40-50 FPS easily. Also right after i load the map there are lot of sluttering, wich will become rarer and rarer as time passes, but it still occurs time to time, just not that frequent. In 1 or 2 months I'm gonna get a gtx460 or gtx560, and I'm gonna see if it raises performance. Since Crysis can be quite playable and responsible with low fps, it is still playable. I set mousewarp to force, so i cant use mouse in the menu, but you can control it with keyboard

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
