What works

Installing and starting the game like the description (adding dlls);

Almost everything. You have to force MouseWarpOverride (see Useful Registry Keys) if you want to control by mouse/keyboard. The game was almost as fast as in windows however my card isn't the best (GF6600GT). I were able to synchronize at lookout points (thus saving the game) complete missions etc.. It seems to me this game can be played and completed in WINE.


What does not

The Animus menu didn't worked for me (but pressing an enter loads the game). Sometimes the FPS goes down (maybe because my poor 3D capability or maybe the side effect of MouseWarpOverride) but the game remains playable.

When you focus on somebody then the screen turn upside down for a second. 

The game was unplayable in virtual window mode (because MouseWarpOverride didn't worked)

Additional Comments

Strange that the sync between graphics and sound loss under Windows (in the present) but OK in Wine.

HowTo / Notes

Performance tweaks

1.) You can improve game performance with this registry settings:

[Software\\Wine\\Direct3D]
"DirectDrawRenderer"="opengl"
"VideoMemorySize"="896"

Set VideoMemorySize to correct amount of RAM for your graphics card.

2.)Run the game with WINEDEBUG=-all command (note: if you want to submit bug and post error logs, make sure you are NOT using this command)

3.)Make sure you have latest official drivers installed for you graphics card. 

HOWTO

The game can be installed and patched. To make the game start up with wine you need to add d3dx9_36.dll to .wine/system32

There is easy way to fix the mouse problem, just add this registry key:

[Software\\Wine\\DirectInput]
"MouseWarpOverride"="force"

You will have to use keyboard in menu with this settings, but in game mouse is working without any bugs.
