Additional Comments

Was able to get it to work by downgrading to Wine 1.1.22. However, there are issues with the music skipping randomly. To downgrade Wine in Ubuntu: 1) Launch Synaptic Package Manager. 2) Search for "wine." 3) Mark "wine" for removal (your previously installed programs will remain untouched). 4) Apply changes. 5) Visit this site... http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/archive/index.html 6) Install an older version of Wine by downloading and running the package.

HowTo / Notes

INSTALLATION HOWTO

Install graphic card drivers, with native OpenGL. Do not enable TwinView, or dual screen.

On 64-bit systems, the 32-bit graphic driver libs need to be installed too, other wise the game wont start, complaining about missing DirectX.

Copy all files from a windows installation, as they are, to the wine drive.
(Contents of C:\Program Files\Codemasters\OperationFlashpoint)

Save your ID from a windows registry in a .reg file, with these two keys:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Codemasters\Operation Flashpoint]
"MAIN"="C:\\Program Files\\Codemasters\\OperationFlashpoint"
"KEY"=hex:aa,ab,ac,ad,ae,af,ba,bc,bd,be,bf,ca,cb,cd,ce

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Codemasters\Operation Flashpoint]
"Player Name"="Your Name"

Apply these registry settings in your Wine instance. Verify them, as you may need to set these manually within the regedit of wine.

Start the game with "wine FLASHPOINTBETA.EXE -nosplash [-mod=@YourMod] .."

Once the game started, start a wine task manager with: "wine taskmgr" and set the CPU affinity for the flashpoint process to a single CPU. Other wise there will be massive lag in multiplayer after a few minutes.
