What does not
Setting shaders above medium - it turns the sky black
What was not tested
Finishing the game
The first time I ran it, steam installed directx, .NET 2.0, Punkbuster, and some MS VC runtime stuff. It all installed perfectly. The game came right up and I was playing immediately, albeit at the default settings - no winetricks or dll overrides in a clean wineprefix. Once you start to tinker and start adjusting the graphical settings upward, anomalies and crashes start to occur but that's due to the combination of wine's directx implementation and your graphics hardware. So your mileage may vary (YMMV). I say it meets the "out of the box, no winecfg changes" criteria for Platinum, but just barely. intel i7-920, nvidia gtx 295 (290.10), 6gb ram Admin note: rating changed to conform to the rating definitions.

First of all, thank you for spend your time helping wine to get better,
These are just suggestions to make tests result more clean and more fast to be submitted.
Be sure that you have 3D support is working, you can check by typing the follow command:
glxinfo | grep "direct rendering:"
It's also recomended to install the following fonts: tahoma.ttf, arial.ttf and verdana.ttf.
The game shoud work fine. Any problem you can see the Troubleshoot notes and post a coment or submit a bug.
This is a known bug, until now we don't know how to fix-it. Just set AntiAliasing to None in game settinhs.
FarCry 2 crash when AntiAliasing is more than 2x.
AntiAliasing isn't working right on FarCry 2, the best thing is to keep disabled.
FayCry 2 randomly crashes.
This is related to the Bug #23045, until now, the best solution is to install secur32 trought winetrick. But even for some people, that solution doensn't work fine, the best thing in that cases is to lower the video settings, it seems that lower video settings has less crash, if that is your case, don't use anything beyond High on graphics settings.
