What works

playing MP, hosting an MP session(did not test if any clients could connect), sound works not perfect(full hardware accelerated, no emulation needed in OSS and ALSA)

What does not

Game is playable and sound effect sound perfect, however there is always noise and glitches during startup or menu selection (before entering a game). I have ALSA and OSS support, but the game makes random small beepies and small glitch noises. The noises seem to go away when actually playing the game.

Shutting down the CoD 4 application in window mode, makes the CoD4 process defunct. When I click yes on the question do you want to quit, it just hangs. I must kill the wine window to close the game. The same applies when in full screen mode.

I have a dual screen tft, but seperate Xwindows instances.
in full screen mode with tft native res: 1600 * 1200
game resolution: 800*600, The screen is split in half. I have set wine to emulate window to fix this. (I can barely select quit and click yes.)
game resolution: 1027*768: game shows normal and is playable as normal, but still hangs when wanting to exit

Game runs slow on res 1024*768 with no extra features off. (I think) it is because due to my old graphics card, the game was not running smooth in full screen with a game res of 1024*768.

Single player, in windowed mode and full screen: When selecting new game, the sound hangs by repeating a 2 second sample of the intro, but loading continues for a while. during loading the game becomes really slow and stops eventually. Have to use kill command to stop the process. Even when lowering res to 800*600 and setting it from full hardware accelrated to emulation, it is not playable.

(I havent applied patch of 3d mark yet)


What was not tested
