What works

Game is quite playable, though it's not perfect. Single player and multiplayer (patched servers) works. You need to install ie6 with winetricks to get multiplayer server Message of the Day work. Game version v2.0.0.6 with Stryder's. Wine 1.1.32 with NoSRGBTexture-patch. About 30 FPS on AMD4200+ x2, NVidia 8800GT 512MB, using NVidia beta 195.22 driver.

What does not

Problems: * Graphics settings require Very High shaders, otherwise you get black screen. * Multiplayer server MOTD _may_ crash the game (not always) * Video restart required in multiplayer after level change, otherwise most textures on static objects are black. Easy way to do this is to change Model/Texture Detail level from advanced options. * NoSRGBTexture-patch is needed for getting decent frames per second. * Sometimes after changing Model/Texture Detail level tree leaves, hedgerows and fences will not draw properly. If this happens, change detail level again.


What was not tested

* Microphone (works poorly in L4D1, not tested). Use TeamSpeak2 or similar. * Original installer

Additional Comments

Displaying MOTD and graphical bugs are worst showstoppers, otherwise I would rate this for Gold.
