System Specs: Xeon Quad-Core 2.5 Ghz 10 gb ram Nvidia Quadro FX1700 512 vram Kernel 2.6.35.12-88.fc14 Nvidia Driver kmod 260.19.36-1 Wine: Tried to get it to work with 64bit wine but the game would crash during gameplay at random times but never longer than a couple minutes. Grabbed the game out of the wine directories, deleted the directories with the winetricks delete option and uninstalled 64bit wine. Installed the 32bit wine dependencies (Courtesy of http://wiki.winehq.org/WineOn64bit): yum install alsa-lib-devel.i686 alsa-lib-devel audiofile-devel.i686 audiofile-devel cups-devel.i686 cups-devel dbus-devel.i686 dbus-devel esound-devel.i686 esound-devel fontconfig-devel.i686 fontconfig-devel freetype.i686 freetype-devel.i686 freetype-devel giflib-devel.i686 giflib-devel hal-devel.i686 hal-devel lcms-devel.i686 lcms-devel libICE-devel.i686 libICE-devel libjpeg-turbo-devel.i686 libjpeg-turbo-devel libpng-devel.i686 libpng-devel libSM-devel.i686 libSM-devel libusb-devel.i686 libusb-devel libX11-devel.i686 libX11-devel libXau-devel.i686 libXau-devel libXcomposite-devel.i686 libXcomposite-devel libXcursor-devel.i686 libXcursor-devel libXext-devel.i686 libXext-devel libXi-devel.i686 libXi-devel libXinerama-devel.i686 libXinerama-devel libxml2-devel.i686 libxml2-devel libXrandr-devel.i686 libXrandr-devel libXrender-devel.i686 libXrender-devel libxslt-devel.i686 libxslt-devel libXt-devel.i686 libXt-devel libXv-devel.i686 libXv-devel libXxf86vm-devel.i686 libXxf86vm-devel mesa-libGL-devel.i686 mesa-libGL-devel mesa-libGLU-devel.i686 mesa-libGLU-devel ncurses-devel.i686 ncurses-devel openldap-devel.i686 openldap-devel openssl-devel.i686 openssl-devel zlib-devel.i686 pkgconfig sane-backends-devel.i686 sane-backends-devel xorg-x11-proto-devel glibc-devel.i686 prelink fontforge flex bison libstdc++-devel.i686 pulseaudio-libs-devel.i686 gnutls-devel.i686 libgphoto2-devel.i686 openal-soft-devel openal-soft-devel.i686 isdn4k-utils-devel.i686 gsm-devel.i686 samba-winbind libv4l-devel.i686 cups-devel.i686 libtiff-devel.i686 gstreamer-devel.i686 gstreamer-plugins-base-devel.i686 gettext-devel.i686 Downloaded Wine 1.2.3 at http://sourceforge.net/projects/wine/files/Source/ Unpacked 32bit wine and compiled it: bunzip2 wine-1.2.3.tar.bz2 tar -xvf wine-1.2.3.tar cd wine-1.2.3 ./configure make (after make completes, enter super user(su)) make install After long compile ran, exit root, run winecfg . This will build your wine directories. I clicked graphics tab, took off check marks on "allow the window manager" and clicked the "emulate virtual desktop" and set the resolution I prefer. Click the audio tab and a box pops up that tells you nothing is chosen. I have the ALSA box checked and that's it. Hit apply and that's it for the winecfg. The game ran a little choppy so I told wine that my video card has 512 mb of memory. sh winetricks Hit ok, click "Change Settings", click ok, clicked "videomemorysize=512" and hit ok. Game seemed to run very good after that with some occasional chops but nothing too unbearable. Everything else (like the d3d, physx, visual basic runtime and so on) was not added like the suggestions you might have read about and the game runs pretty sweet.
