Additional Comments

Needed to install in VirtualBox, installer crashed on wine when accepting Punkbuster's EULA. Did NOT get kicked by Punkbuster. Wine+PB works now? Or did they just turned of PB in BF:Heroes? Cant play at a higher resolution than 1024x768 (even tried to manually set it in config, but doesnt work aswell) Getting some 'graphic glitches' when in windowmode (Sometimes everything else than the game gets black, moving windows erases the black overlay and shows the desktop again) Also im just getting ~30 FPS. But enough to playable, maybe there are some settings to gain more FPS. Running in low-settings gives some more fps.

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
