What works


What does not

  • The menus, map and tip pop-ups keep resetting the mouse wrap. Every time you resume gameplay, you have to click once to wrap the mouse around the edges so it won't escape the window. Using the registry key "MouseWrapOverride" as "forced" will make the menus unusuable. Because of this you won't be able to start or quit the game, and you'll have to forcefully shut down Wine with "wineserver -k".
  • There are some black squares showing up randomly in the main menu and in video playback (this is fixed by applying a community patch, see "Additional Comments").

Additional Comments

After playing the game for about three hours, I have installed the community patch "Sneaky Upgrade" version from here: I have played for another hour with this patch. It has fixed the black squares, and seems to have improved loading times. If Garrett starts floating around, don't worry, it's not a Wine bug. From what I've read, it happens on Windows too. To get him back on his feet (pun intended), draw the bow, nock it, then press escape so you won't lose your arrow. He should be back now. Other than the mouse wrap issue, the game seems to run flawless, it's very close to a Platinum. The game was installed in a clean Wine prefix and tested on a GeForce 9500GT with proprietary drivers, version 331.67.
