Additional Comments

Additional registry tweak is required: 1) in console type "wine regedit" 2) navigate to \HKCU\Software\Wine\Direct3D (if Direct3D key doesn't exists, create it) 3) create string "OffscreenRenderingMode", assign value "fbo" 4) start the game. For KDE 4.x users, it is advisable to turn off plasma by issuing "kquitapp plasma" before starting the game. This will noticeably improve performance (also for any 3D game in general).
