crashing after EA logo video, white screen, then exiting
by czirakib on Friday December 23rd 2016, 6:00
Hi everybody,

GOG version of Mirror's Edge, default Wine settings (tried multiple stuff, like OpenAL32 switching to native, but maybe done it the wrong way), 2.0-rc2, installed winetricks PhysX.

Splash screen OK, Loading OK, EA video OK, then white screen for 1 second then quiting.

Terminal output below, please point me toward anything.

RE: crashing after EA logo video, white screen, then exiting

I too had problems launching the game with any wine version I tried. My output looked almost the same as yours except that I had an additional xrandr error. I don't know if this was caused by a wine bug, driver or xrandr bug but I could work around it by launching the game in a virtual desktop configured to match my native screen resolution. It still could be that your issue is another one and this doesn't help but it's worth a try. Don't forget to also enable catching the mouse in the virtual desktop, otherwise it's a pain to play the game.
Note about Physx
by Aswin Hanagal on Saturday February 27th 2016, 23:10
Physx also causes the game to lag under windows so its actually a mirrors edge problem rather than wine
by argh! on Saturday April 13th 2013, 21:34
Had some problems with the mouse after installation:

I could only turn about 180 degrees. It sounded like an old bug which could be fixed with [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\DirectInput] "MouseWarpOverride"="force", BUT it turns that this old bug only happends when you use a virtual desktop. So, don't use a virtual desktop.

Next thing, what I thought was another mouse bug is apparently some mouse acceleration working as intended. You'll see what I mean. If you scratch your head asking yourself who in their right mind would want to control and FPS that way, open the file %USERPROFILE%\My Documents\My Games\EA Games\Mirror's Edge\TdGame\Config\TdInput.ini and set bEnableMouseSmoothing=false.

Btw, I installed on a clean prefix, only thing needed was corefonts installed through winetricks.
RE: Mouse
by Michael on Sunday June 30th 2013, 6:25
Ok I had a mouse problem as well. It felt like the mouse was stuck on the desktop and not locked for the game, so I couldn't turn completely. For me all I had to do was tab out of the game and back and that fixed it.
Destination folder
by Marisa Kirisame on Monday December 24th 2012, 13:39
The installer doesn't seem to let me change the destination folder, any way to fix this?
RE: Destination folder
by Marisa Kirisame on Monday December 24th 2012, 14:18
Nevermind, got that sorted out, turns out the text box for the directory isn't refreshed after selecting one.

I'm running into another problem now, though. Despite the game running smoothly in any other condition, whenever there's enemy AI involved the framerate drops down to a crawl.
RE: Destination folder
by Maquis196 on Monday December 24th 2012, 16:07
Does this also happen with broken glass? Sounds to me like you have physx enabled, turn this off and you should be ok. (If not, then it's something we should try to get to the bottom off)
RE: Destination folder
by Marisa Kirisame on Wednesday December 26th 2012, 10:41
I've tried now, disabling PhysX doesn't get rid of the framerate drops.

If it's of any help, I'm on Arch Linux x86_64 running Wine 1.5.20. I have am Intel Core 2 Quad Q8400 and a NVIDIA GTX 560Ti, 8GB of DDR3 RAM.

Also my game's patched to 1.01 and I run in 1080p with high settings and no AA, although lowering these doesn't seem to make a difference.

I can't get past the very beginning of the game like this...
Surround Sound
by Martin Herkt on Tuesday October 2nd 2012, 5:24
To get surround sound working properly, replace the game’s version of OpenAL32.dll in the Binaries subdirectory with a build of openal-soft from here:

This also works for many other games that use OpenAL.
Mirror's edge is overbright
by OSuKaRu on Wednesday July 13th 2011, 4:49
I upgraded wine to 1.3.24 and now Mirror's edge seems overbright. It seems to be a problem with HDR/bloom stuff even in very low graphics conf. but. Why does it? How i can fix it? Mabe an extra tweak in regedit? help please.
RE: Mirror's edge is overbright
by Martin Herkt on Tuesday October 2nd 2012, 5:30
In case anyone is still running into this, using a WINE prefix *without* any native Direct3D DLL overrides fixes it.

by Cheeseness on Friday June 3rd 2011, 3:21
I still need MouseWarpOverride set to force in Fedora 15 with 1.3.20 from the repos :(
It also still seems to crash like a dog when quitting, dying, scratching my nose, etc..

Do you have anything special in your TdEngine.ini?
