-Installation through steam.
-Launching of the game. (Without the 3d mark patch i recieved an error about unsupported graphcis card).
-Game play, is slow.
What does not
-First level, crashes about 88% through loading. Had to use a saved game to get past.
-HDR lighting issues. In console (~) use 'con_restricted 0' & 'r_glow 0'
-Sound in videos.
What was not tested
-Extended game play
Game runs slow, but playable. Shaders need to be set to high to have to see everything correctly. With shaders on 'gamer' (high) The game runs too slow to be playable on my computer. It runs slower than the original Crysis, but the graphics artifacts that plagued the original are not present in warhead.

The game needs more or less the same procedure as the original Crysis. See here for more info
The Installer is currently broken. Either use the Steam version or install in a Virtual Machine.
What do you need ?
- A fast CPU. We suggest minimally quad cores.
- A fast graphic card. Something like nVidia GTX2xx/4xx/5xx. The game will probably not work with AMD card
- A fast Linux distro. Something like Gentoo or Arch Linux. You can run it on some slower user friendly distro like Ubuntu, Fedora... but you will have low fps and it will be hard to play it.
- Some free time
