Additional Comments

Okay, this took some configuring to get installed. In order to get this working, I used the following recipe: Hardware Setup: AMD Athlon(tm) Processor LE-1640 nVidia Corporation GT200 [GeForce GTX 260] (rev a1) MemTotal: 1014888 kB (1GB) OS: Slackware 13.1_64, multi-lib enabled. Kernel: 1. Compiled latest development version of wine 2. Installed msvcp90.dll & xlive.dll in c:/windows/system32 2.a. Using winecfg, under libraries tab, set msvcp90.dll to native (Windows). 3. Via winetricks installed: a. d3dx9 (This installs versions 24-42 and sets them as native in winecfg) b. dotnet30 c. vcrun2008 d. comctl32 Finally, I set the following registry keys in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct3D : DirectDrawRenderer (String Value) = opengl VideoMemorySize (String Value, set to size of video ram. Your size may vary!) = 896 VideoPCIDeviceID (DWORD, hex) * VideoPCIVendorID (DWORD, hex) * To get both of the Video* values above, perform a lspci -n, look for the section with your video card. (If your using Slackware like me, you'll have to do a lspci first to know which device corresponds the gpu controller, and then preform lspci -n.) Mine shows: 02:00.0 0300: 10de:05e2 (rev a1). 0x10de is the VendorID, and 0x05e2 is the DeviceID. This took some effort for me to get running, but it was well worth it. I certainly didn't work the first several times I tried, but after reading the logs and reading the feedback on winehq, I was able to figure it out. Have fun in the wasteland!

HowTo / Notes

Requirements for running

Things needed to be installed for F:NV to run;

winetricks d3dx9

winetricks quartz* - Maybe

*With 1.3.25 onwards, some dll overrides could cause issues (I'm looking squarely at  quartz) - This could just have been an issue with me because I have a wine-steam prefix with as many games that work as possible in there, had to move New Vegas to its own prefix after these issues. The winetricks version of quartz is from directx9, a user reported that he needed the win7 version for it to work. YMMV

This will be updated if anything else comes up as a requirement.
