Additional Comments

Tested with a rip version without music/radio tracks. Must be run from command line to work. In my machine, it runs better than in Windows.

HowTo / Notes

How to get GOOD performance on ATI cards

Posted by

 

GTA2 has a hidden option to
use Glide for video.

1. Set up your controls etc using GTA2 manager.
2. Install a Glide wrapper- I use
http://www.zeckensack.de/glide/archive/GlideWrapper084c.exe .
3. wine regedit -> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> Software -> DMA Design -> Screen:
   set "rendername" (a String/REG_SZ) to "3dfx.dll"
   set "videoname" (a String/REG_SZ) to "dmaglide.dll"
4. If you open GTA2 manager again, you need to setup the registry keys again-
GTA2 manager does not support Glide mode.
5. If you're using GTA2 v11 or greater, you will find the registry key in
HKEY_CURRENT_USER instead of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.
6. Launch GTA2 directly, i.e. create a shortcut to start in the GTA2 directory
and run wine gta2.exe .

Because of this I believe the problem is related to the DIB engine. But it's
been so long since I heard that information I can't be certain.
Blinking screen?
This may happen when you're using open source graphic card drivers. Try run game with disabled KMS. See there how to do it in Ubuntu (may work in other distros too): https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/KernelModeSetting
