Selected Test Results

What works

  • Most of the game
  • Shadows wit Shader 3.0 works great but disabling them gives me 100% more fps so its worse to enable them.­
  • ­

What does not

  • The normal installer does not work without some tricks but its installable (see below for a description)
  • The webinstaller works but the gui is not refreshing. (again, see below)
  • I guess its not that smooth then in windows but its perfectly playable. No lag and enough fps (100 in most regions)
  • There is a small mouse problem. (No, not that one all other tests complain about, i fixed that). Switching from CHAT- to PLAY mode lets the mouse jump to the top left corner. Its not  a big problem but you can get confused at first. 
  • The biggest problem is. You cannot access the ingame "journal". The problem is regarding the used ingame webkit based browser. It causes darkfall to crash. I spent some days fixing this without success. Anyway, you can access the "journal" directly with your normal webbrowser but you cannot access the "diary" whats part of the "journal" and shows your quests. This is the biggest problem that game has so far.

Additional Comments

I had to install d3dx9, ie6 and vcrun2008 otherwise the installer will not work! You can use winetricks for this. Its possible you have to install directx9 either i'm not completely sure about that. Try it without before and if its not working install it. The game has a general mouse problem. SO mouse can escape the game window what makes the game unplayable. BUt, you can fix this by adding a registration key to your wine configuration using regedit: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\DirectInput] "MouseWarpOverride"="force" 1. The installer does not work, the compressed game file cannot be extracted so you have to do this by hand. So start the installer once and kill it when the extraction progress is stuck. After that use your favorite extraction program and extract everything downloaded to "Darkfall/data/" directory. I had to start the main installer again after that an "repair" the installation. 2. The launcher does not refresh its gui so you have to minimize it after EACH interaction. To start the game do: Click charaktertab > click the character > MINIMIZE the launcher > open it up again > click play > MINIMIZE it again > the game will start after that My system: CPU: Intel i7 quadcore Gfx: Nvidia Gforce 275 GTX Gfx driver: 256.44 RAM: 8 GB
