Additional Comments

Installed into a clean wine environment, had to install the following packages with winetricks: gecko, firefox, flash, corefonts, tahoma, vcrun2005. Rated to Garbage because the main goal of the game (online gameplay) is not working.

HowTo / Notes


1) configure wine to use a 1024x768 virtual desktop and set the version to windows XP


3) go to the beta site and donwloadthe game

4) if there are graphic bugs (blocky shadows) launch regedit and add HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\AppDefaults\BFHeroes.exe\Direct3D and then make a new string and call it OffscreenRenderingMode then set its value to fbo

5) if the game crashes at the charater selction then delet the battflield heroes folder from the home directroy

6) have fun playing the game

if u do not emulate the virtual desktop the game failed to launch in my tests
