HowTo / Notes

HOWTO (2011 wrote by LinuxRealPower)

What do you need ?

  • A fast CPU. We suggest minimally quad cores.
  • A fast graphic card. Something like nVidia GTX2xx/4xx/5xx. The game will probably not work with AMD card
  • A fast Linux distro. Something like Gentoo or Arch Linux. You can run it on some slower user friendly distro like Ubuntu, Fedora... but you will have low fps and it will be hard to play it.
  • Some free time

How to install it ?

1.) You have to install the latest Wine with this patch:

2.) You have to install these winetricks:
