    Additional Comments

    BFV did not work for me with the default settings, you need to start winecfg, go the Graphics tab and select "Emulate Virtual Desktop" and enter a valid resolution (I used 1024x768). Once that is set you can launch the game in a window and it seems to all work fine. If you need to run the game full screen you can change "renderer.allowAllRefreshRates 1" in "C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield Vietnam\Mods\BfVietnam\settings\VideoDefault.con" and that seems to work also, although when the game exist my screen resolution is stuck at the game resolution. It's probably best to run it in a window.

    HowTo / Notes

    HOWTO

    As of wine v1.2 this is no longer needed.

    As at Wine v0.9.58 Battlefield Vietnam works well, but there are some changes that need to be made to get it working and you have two choices, they are both simple and it really depends on whether you want to play the game full screen or not.  I would strongly recommend that you run BFV in a window, but the choice is yours

    Option 1
    Start winecfg, go the Graphics tab and select "Emulate Virtual Desktop" and enter a valid resolution (I used 1024x768). Once that is set you can launch the game in a window and it seems to all work fine.

    Option 2
    If you need to run the game full screen you can change "renderer.allowAllRefreshRates 1" in "C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield Vietnam\Mods\BfVietnam\settings\VideoDefault.con" and that seems to work also, although when the game exist my screen resolution is stuck at the game resolution.
