HowTo / Notes


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

How to install it ?

- 1.) You have to install the latest Wine with this patch:

- 2.) You have to install these winetricks:

d3dx9 d3dx9_26 d3dx9_28 d3dx9_31 d3dx9_35 d3dx9_36 d3dx9_42 d3dx10 d3dxof devenum dinput8 directmusic directplay directx9 dmsynth fontsmooth-rgb quertz nocrashdialog

- 3.) You have to install the game and patch it with Warhead patch 1.1 for better performance
