install: it's a tricky business.
crucial is to install ROF in a clean wine environment, so give it a dir of it's own,
and then do: export WINEPREFIX=( install dir )
then do winecfg
then and only then, start installing.
visual C runtime installs, crashes halfway
directx 9 installs
.net installs, with errors.
Â setup window boots, and you need to update.
from then on, things work pretty normal.
when using fullscreen:
only the cockpit view (once flying) works ok. the others are garbled. ( chase view etcetera )
when using windowed, this goes away. some graphics flicker, but probably because ofÂ turning of vertical sync..
graphics card: 1 GB nvidia 250 GTS ( quite hefty, indeed.)
compared to windows, reasonable performance, not noticeably less.
What does not
fullscreen does not work flawless (see above)
