Double Dragon Forever ( DDF ) version 0.9 beta
Double Dragon Forever is a fan made tribute to the first two arcade games featuring the original brawling classic gameplay that made Double Dragon such a hit back in the 80's.
The game works pretty well in fullscreen mode, at a very good speed.
The graphical corruption on the garage door (mission 1 beginning), that hapenned with previous wine versions is fixed now.
There are still a few graphical glitches, but it's playable.
What does not
Music: you have to disable it or the game will not run at all.
Life bars and other gfx boxes are invisible.
Sprites are drawn 1 pixel lower (wine offscreen drawing bug).
Running with Offscreenrendering=fbo results in missing sprite frames.
Stretching window (window mode).
What was not tested
Nothing I can think of.
I have rated it Gold previously, but reading the definitions I think silver is more adequate. There is a workaround for the border bug. If I could get music to work I could rate it gold.

-Use the latest version of wine. Older versions will not work.
-The drivers for your video card must be installed and hardware acceleration must be enabled. Open a terminal and type `glxinfo`. If it says `Direct Rendering : Yes` then it should be okay.
-Open your `ddragonf.ini`. Under section [CONFIG], use `playmusic=0` (no music) and `borderfix=1` (workaround for the sprite borders bug 13595). You will get no music, and a few graphical glitches, but the game is fully playable.
