Well, almost everything that I haven't listed in "what does not work" I suppose.
A list of what you might want to know:
Laser pointer (a lot of test datas said that laser pointer doesn't work so well, but it works without problems for me.)
What does not
Depth of field
Soften smoke edges
Couldn't choose game mode in fullscreen mode, I'll describe how to switch to windowed mode in extra comments.
What was not tested
Gold rating since it works very well right out of the box, gameplay is smooth and I'm not experiencing any problems in multiplayer at all. I'm very happy with this game. But since things like motion blur and night vision according to other tests doesn't work I'll give it a strong gold rating. FPS isn't all that high, but it's pretty decent. I suppose you'd get a little bit better FPS with Windows or OSX. Speccs on my 2 year old computer: Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E6850 @ 3.00GHz 4GB RAM Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB 500GB HDD 11GB SWAP Okay, so how I installed it: First of all you need Wine if you haven't got it so just do this in terminal: sudo apt-get install wine After that you need to install gecko, corefonts, mfc42, d3dx9, dotnet2, ie6 via winetricks, so just do this in terminal: sh winetricks gecko corefonts mfc42 d3dx9 dotnet20 ie6 Then do this in a terminal: wine regedit in HKEY_CURRENT_USER-Software-Wine create, if it's doesn't already exists, a new key named Direct3D in Direct3D create the following strings with the following values: string: DirectDrawRenderer value: opengl string: Nonpower2Mode value: repack string: OffscreenRenderingMode value: fbo string: RenderTargetLockMode value: auto string: UseGLSL value: readtex string: VideoMemorySize value: memory_size_of_your_graphic_card (Thanks to AJSB for this) After that you'll need to install Steam. Go to www.steampowered.com and download Steam by clicking the "Get steam now" button in the left menu bar. Then browse to your setup-file and just run it in wine by right clicking it and then select "Run in Wine windows program loader" (or something like that) and then just follow the instructions and install Steam, this should work without any problems at all. After that you'll need a Steam-account so just register one via steam. Then you'll login. Now exit steam and start it again, login if you haven't chosen autologin on your computer. Now run CoD Disk 1, wait a few seconds until "Disk_1" pops up on your desktop. Then right click it and browse. Now you should see some files, choose Setup.exe and run it in Wine. Okay, now you should get a menu, you won't see it all since it's resized but you should at least be able to see an "I" to the right, click it to begin the installation. After that, just follow the instructions and let it install. When the installer asks for Disk 2, open up a new terminal and type: wine eject After that you'll have to run Disk 2, wait a couple of seconds until "Disk_2" pops up on your desktop. Then click "OK" in the window that asks for Disk 2. After that, just let the installation finish. Do not run the game directly, I'd recommend you to close Steam and then start it again. Now just start the game from the games-list in Steam, if you experience trouble with fullscreen like I did then you'll have to edit the configuration file to make the game windowed. (Nope, -windowed command in steam startup options won't work) Okay, first of all browse to: ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Steam/steamapps/common/call of duty modern warfare 2/players There you should see a file named config_mp.cfg, open it with gedit or something. Now you'll need to look for the line seta r_fullscreen "1" (You could just ctrl+f it) For windowed mode, change that to: seta r_fullscreen "0" and then save the configuration file. Now the game should be in windowed mode when you run it, for me the resolution for some reason changed to 640x400 and you can't play the game in a small window like that, but there's a simple fix, just go to the options in the game and change the resolution to whatever you want. Have fun playing! :) Denieru
