Additional Comments

Here is my how-to for the game: 1. create a clean environment env WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-gta3 wine winecfg 2. install directx9 using winetricks env WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-gta3 sh winetricks directx9 3. install the game with wine set to windows xp 4. run the game, setting wine for gta3.exe to windows 98 and then go to the Audio tab and set Bits per sample to 8 My spec`s are: Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2Ghz with 2Gb of RAM with an Nvidia GeForce 9400GT with 1024mb of memory GPU using 190.53 video driver
