Additional Comments

I use dual monitor and the mouse had issues unless I did the "emulate a virtual desktop" for this program to match the size of my main monitor. Note that you can't just do the override for the steam.exe binary, because this game uses two of it's own binaries. BlackOps.exe and BlackOpsMP.exe (for multiplayer). Located at "~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Steam/steamapps/common/call of duty black ops/". I played single player all the way through and multiplayer for the past week or so, and it was pretty laggy during firefights, costing me lots of deaths. Then I disabled GLSL like someone below mentioned and instantly I didn't have any lag issues during firefights in multiplayer. (I didn't test single, but multi was always worse anyways). Disable GLSL as mentioned here. Before doing that I got around 20-30 fps (during firefights, you can always get a good 90 staring at walls ;-P). After the setting, my FPS didn't actually go up much, if at all, but the more important part is that I never lagged when someone was firing at me. With the FPS issues I would have given it Silver, but with the "fix" I'll give it gold. Specs are Intel i7 860 (2.8GHz) Geforce GTX 260 4 GB ram (though black ops never takes more than 800MB)

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO - In game sound

Try a clean WINE prefix (I think it's not necessary)

Install Directx from the CoD:BO game directory.

Set winever to XP.

Set dsound to builtin.

I use ALSA with full hardware aceleration.
