This is on a new wineprefix, after installing steam, and using winetricks to install vcrun2005 - which is the only I can seem to satisfy the VisualC++ dependency.
- installation via steam (App 13210)
- starting the game for the first time, and DECLINING all middleware installation prompts (direct3d, ageia physx, openal, and visual c++)
- playing in offline mode
- sound (you might need recent wine to handle openal natively), including text-to-speech
Playable framerate with (almost) all video options enabled, no aa, 1600x1200. Core2 @ 3.2 Ghz 2GB DDR2, 8800 GTS 320.
What does not
Mouse (bug 6971); used force_edge hack http://repo.or.cz/w/wine/hacks.git/commit/5d6288a37f918ebe84c110bd12b407e7077481ec set on the "UT3.exe" executable.
The only graphical option that doesn't render correctly is the "Depth of Field/Bloom" option - it makes it look like there are brownish-gray smoke/farts in the foreground. Some other effects might not be rendering as well, and I will try to remember to post screenshots if I spot any, but overall the game looks good.
What was not tested
Online play (stupid gamespy id system stinks, and no players anyway)
Rated Silver because of the need to patch wine to work around the mouse bug, otherwise, I might have chosen Gold. Having problems with your offline config's saving correctly? See: http://www.howto-answers.com/news/fix-offline-settings-not-saving-unreal-tournament-3 You can avoid the VisualC++ prompt whenever you start the Steam version by deleting 'steamapps/common/unreal tournament 3/VCRedist'.

First of all, thank you for spending some time to help Wine to get better,
These are recommendations to make tests result more uniform and targeted to include common information that will be useful to other users of Wine.
Just install your game like other normal game installed on Steam, it's not necessary any patch or program. For more detail how to boost your games see the section Tips below.
After installing,to override wine vcrun to the native one, create a file called vcrun.reg and put the following content:
Then run the follow command:
You can also install Visual C runtime libraries using winetricks, by typing:
To also make sure that everything will work fine, install the tahoma.ttf, arial.ttf, verdana.ttf and lucida.ttf fonts on your prefix. You can do-it manually or using winetricks with the follow command:
This bug normally happens because of the Visual C Runtime, see the Tips section for more information.
This happens in alot of games if you dont set the size of RAM that you VideoCard has, use this registry key to set:
Change the 768 to the real ammount of RAM in MB that your VideoCard has.
Game closes shortly after open.
This is a common Steam Overlay problem, to solve, open your winecfg and override the library gameoverlayrenderer to Disabled.
Note: These problems don't affect the newest versions of wine, it's only here for precaution, if you have any of these bug's maybe you should upgrade your wine version.
This happens because the Mouse Input of wine is not so good until now, you can solve adding this patch to registry:
The Mouse will not work into the menu, you gonna have to use the keyboard to walk into the Unreal menus.
Mouse is showing in the screen while playing (Only steam version).
This bug only happens with the Steam version, all the games into steam has this problem with old versions of wine/steam.
See more at bug #27779.
Mouse randomly jumps around menu or in game.
This is caused by implementation of mouse input in old versions of wine, to solve-it, you need to run the game in Windowed mode or into a Virtual Desktop.
UT3 Logo hangs indefinitely using 100% of cpu.
You can solve this problem by using the options -nomoviestartup and -onethread in the game executable. Newest version of wine don't have this bug.
