Additional Comments

This is my second update since 2009 when I tested this game on Ubuntu. Can say after long time passed this game no suffering from low FPS. And "Gold" Rating is the exact mark for now because of used Wine's d3dx9_32 dll which shows some artefacts, but its can be get rid if used native d3dx9_32 dll as described below in howto. Tested platform: Gentoo 2.6.36-kernel Intel P8400 - 2.4 Ghz Core 2 Duo CPU Nvidia GeForce M 9800 GTS 1Gb RAM

Great that this is documented nowhere and you can't choose it in the options ...

wine sof3.exe -windowed

Ran in virtual desktop 1920x1024 (which the game then accepts as a resolution to play on).
