Additional Comments

Tested on two systems, with Radeon HD 7870 (radeonsi mesa driver from git master) and Nvidia GTS 450 (381.22 driver).

As per you should set the MaxVersionGL key to a version more suitable for Direct3D 10/11. I have used both 40001 and 40005 overrides (OpenGL 4.1 and 4.5), each works.
I also enable csmt by setting the csmt key to 1.

Texture issues are noticeable but minor, what I have experienced does not impact gameplay.

Crashes, on the other hand, do occur unpredictably. As I understand it the game has similar issues under Windows. I can experience several in a row in an area which previously gave me no trouble, or go all day with no crashes.

HowTo / Notes


­This game requires IE7+ to be installed for the Launcher to function.  

­­cd ~/.wine
chmod +x winetricks­
winetricks ie8 

If walking forward causes your character to roll you will need to enable a work around in the console before playing the game and once finished disable the work around.  This is a bug in X that has been fixed so newer distributions will not have this issue. 

Before playing: 

xset r off

After playing: 

xset r on

­In general you will want to play STO using the low graphics option in the profile selector that comes up when the game loads.  If you have very recent hardware you will be able to play using the higher graphics option. 

Any other bugs you find should be reported!
