What works

  • the launcher (changing the screen resolution, detail level etc.)
  • cutscenes

  • mouse and keyboard in the main game

What does not

  • the game crashes while loading the first mission when Texture Resolution and Scene Complexity are set to 'High'
  • extremely slow performance (even on the lowest resolution/details). The menus also react very slowly
  • loading a saved game takes a huge amount of time ( >5 min)
  • shadows (blocky)
  • doesn't restore the original screen resolution on exit (fullscreen)


What was not tested

  • more than an hour of gameplay (because of the performance issue)

Additional Comments

The game crashes on the first level load when Texture Resolution and Scene Complexity are set to 'High'. The game is barely playable because of the performance issue. 800x600 resolution, all details set to 'low', post-process effects disabled. Tested on: AMD Athlon 64 x2 4200+ 3 GB Ram Nvidia GeForce 250 GTS / driver 275.09.07

I currently have Just Cause installed on my 08 mbp 9400m core 2 duo 2.53 ghz through a clean wine prefix utilizing Engine 1.7.54 and it runs very well. I have not experienced any crashes, audio bugs or texture issues and at medium settings it runs great.
Runs fine in Single-Core mode

When I first ran Just Cause in Wine 1.6.2 everything was really slow.
I found that it has a problem with multi-core CPU's
So now I run it with a single CPU using the Terminal and taskset -c 0 playonlinux
then I launch the game
