Installation via Steam, with some workarounds*
OpenAL with no work around
Splash screen, intro video, main menu**
What does not
Game repeatedly freezes and crashes during the loading of a checkpoint. If this happens during story mode, then you're pretty much screwed on your game.*** Will file bug report if this isn't magically fixed in 1.2-rc4.
err:ntdll:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection section 0x7df1ba40 "x11drv_main.c: X11DRV_CritSection" wait timed out in thread 0015, blocked by 000c, retrying (60 sec)
wine: Critical section 7df07a40 wait failed at address 0x7bc356bd (thread 0047)
What was not tested
The entire game, due to the bug.
Wine version 1.2-rc4. Will submit another test if the results are any different.
* When you first try to install it, it will try to install Direct X. This won't work, so hit cancel and it won't try again. It will then install PhysX and Visual C Runtimes. Let these install. After that, the game still won't start up. You'll need d3dx10_35.dll, which can be easily obtained through winetricks. ** In the Main-Menu, the mouse will work just fine, but in game, it will run into the edge of the screen. To fix the latter, set MouseWarpOverride to force, something that can easily be done using winetricks. This will, however, break the mouse in the menu, so you'll have to use the keyboard to navigate the menu. *** There's no real way to predict when this happens. Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn't, but when it happens, I have yet to find a way to continue on that save file. Because of this, it renders the game unfinishable, and earns it a garbage rating. ----------------------------- System Specs: AMD Athlon 64 x2 4800+ 2GB RAM nVidia 9600 GT 512mb (Driver version 195.36.24 from nVidia website)
