Additional Comments

I am using Kubuntu 14.04 64 bit os. With Nvidia proprietary drivers.
I am not forcing a 32 bit wine prefix.
Virtual desktop on or off makes no difference to my game.
This is a clean install of wine with mono, gecko, and basic .net support installed by wine of course.
Install directx9 using winetricks.
xaudio2_0.dll from the game folder or an online source, Must be placed in home/.wine/c:/windows/system32 folder. Depending on your distro.
Save the following link ( as sound.reg and import it with: wine regedit sound.reg
Open winecfg and set Windows version to Windows 7 or add the .exe file that you want to run the game to that list, And make it win 7 compatible. In my case i used the cod5sp.exe, Since i dont do multiplayer.

Models flickering?
by Matthew on Thursday September 10th 2015, 19:21
So I got the game running fine except after starting a match of Zombies (or campaign for that matter) your characters "gun" and other characters (Zombies, NPCs etc) will flicker like crazy (As in vanish and reappear like crazy every second).

I tried to take a Screenshot but it just came out black each time.. anyway, any help would be greatly appreciated as aside from this major bug the game runs great.. :(

Most of these hacks are unnecessary. It's important to make sure you have libopenal support installed in your linux distro. Then in winecfg under applications, choose cod5sp.exe, And set it to win 7 compatibility. Then under libraries choose openal. And set the override to native then built in support. Then if the sound doesn't work, You can try the registry files provided here, As well as the dll's.

I have sound in kubuntu 14. Running at a resolution of 1440x900 with very good frame rate. And all settings on high. And zero crashes.
