What works

Everything that I tested, except sound.

Finished the demo.

What does not



What was not tested

Other graphic configurations other than medium with no AA, and only AF 2x.  Anything higher than that probably would have run too slowly for me.

Additional Comments

Everything worked great, except sound would not work at all in game. Performance was pretty good for Medium settings, completely playable. I used the Steam version, which installed DirectX and VC Run when I first launched it. So if you aren't using the Steam version, you may need to install those with winetricks. This is the demo, but I believe the full game will work just as well. Gentoo AMD64 AMD Opteron 170 Dual Core 2gb RAM Geforce 8800GTS 320mb on both nvidia drivers 180.44 and 180.51 Xorg server 1.5.3

Not an ambiturner

Can ONLY turn left. Everything seems to render correctly, but once I get in-game, it's like someone is holding the turn left key down or something and I just sit there and spin. No other games do this, tried changing the key configuration for "left" to something else and it didn't help. Only thing I didn't do was try unplugging my mouse and keyboard, but it can't be that as no other programs have this issue, Wine or Linux.

Anyone else get the same problem?

Using 1.1.22
ati support???
by Jarek on Friday May 8th 2009, 7:44
when i start the demo this will be prompt:
fixme:thread:NtSetInformationThread info class 17 not supported yet

this means that my videocard is not supported at this time. i have a ati radeon 1950xpro.
i think that the error ocours because of the missing card driver which is not longer supported in jaunty release for this card.
does anyone have an idea?

The program installed, but when I try to run the executable, a window appears saying, "An application has made an attempt to load the C runtime library incorrectly, and WINE complains: 'Could not find dependent assembly L"Microsoft.VC80.CRT"' and '"MSVCR80.dll" failed to initialize, aborting'. I've had errors concerning these files with other programs, too.

You need to install Microsoft Visual C Runtime. The easiest way is install it using winetricks.
RE: MSVCR80.dll
by Jeremy Gove on Saturday February 7th 2009, 19:06
I already tried that, but it didn't help. Somehow, deleting my .wine directory, reinstalling WINE and reinstalling the demo made it load. It works up until the point where it says "Initializing(?) Kernel" (ironically) on the character's helmet. Then it has a segmentation fault.
RE: MSVCR80.dll
by Jarek on Friday May 8th 2009, 7:35
it works! you have to install with winetricks 1st. vcrun2005 and 2nd. vcrun2005sp1

and it works!!!
Init. kernel
by anw on Tuesday January 27th 2009, 14:33
Game starts normally, but it freeze when it wrote "Initializing kernel ..... " (in-game message - it's neither system nor game message)

How can I get this running? The game asks for d3dx9_40.dll, but I don't have it even in windows copy and the new dx fails to install.
RE: d3dx9_40.dll
by Christoph Korn on Friday January 23rd 2009, 7:32
This file is installed automatically by the installer.
RE: d3dx9_40.dll
by Jazz on Friday January 23rd 2009, 8:31
Strange, but installer does not install them in clean wineprefix. Can you post any additional information about your wine configuration?
RE: d3dx9_40.dll
by Christoph Korn on Friday January 23rd 2009, 12:34
I don't have any additional information.

I created a clean wineprefix and installed the F.E.A.R. 2 Demo inside it. All required files have been created.
