Additional Comments

- No flickering was present - Gameplay worked fine, however I was getting around 7-9 FPS. Optimization is definitely necessary. HOW TO (Kinda): (NOTE: I am horrible at using wine, so I may have installed things that were not needed. I basically just fixed every error that popped up by installing more stuff, and in the end it worked) -Install Winetricks -Install Mono -Install Steam and the Game -Go to the setup files for the game (system_options.xml) and change fullscreen to windowed. (The file can be found in ~/username/application Data/Natural selection 2) NOTE: It may be necessary to view hidden files -Necessary to edit the Wine registry for video memory size (Set at 2048 as suggested) as well as turn on strict drawing order.
