Additional Comments

silver rating, since patching does not work Game engine has a bug, which causes severe performance drops on specific resolutions (~5 fps on 16:9 types); 4:3 works fine though Patches would fix this, but due to GFWL patch distribution, the only possibility to fix that is by installing and patching this game on windows, then copying it over to linux. Please note that the game has to be started in order to apply patches (via start game menu), thus virtualization might or might not do the trick...

HowTo / Notes

DLLs Overrides

The game requires GFWL to run but the servers are dead, to play the game download the xlive dll override from here and copy the files to the directory:

> C:\windows\syswow64 

The multiplayer mode is not available due to the shut down of GFWL. 

Fix Pulseaudio crackling

There is a workaround (see here), open a new shell and type:

while true; do pasuspender sleep 0.02; sleep 60; done
