Test machine specifications:
Intel Core 2 Duo (Quad) 2.6*4, 4gb DDR3, 1gb GDDR3 Nvidia GT220
What does not
Some minor problems reading game DVD so you may find you need to copy the ENTIRE contents of the DVD to your drive and run setup.exe from there. Then just have the DVD in the drive when playing as usual.
What was not tested
This game works perfectly for me, not one problem. However i have seen machines with lower specs have problems. My rule for wine gaming is: take your existing machine and double the memory & chip quality of what you can afford and thats what you will need to make a windows game run almost as half as good as it would in windows with the same specs. oh and don't bother with ANY version of wine before OR after 1.2.3 their just plain rubbish. Sorry codeweavers but i base that comment on A LOT OF RESEARCH!!!

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.
First, install the game from your CD, open the CD folder on your unix and run the setup.exe as any other normal software, then download here the patch 1.03 and install-it on the same prefix as FarCry 2.
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.
