Additional Comments

Games for Windows Live doesn't work. You can try to sign into an existing account, and enter the game product key that Steam provides, but it'll then go on to complain about an error with your network card driver which is preventing activation. This prevents you from getting to the main menu. To get rid of this problem, I used a replacement xlive.dll file I found. Details of that and the download link can be found here: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=360730911 AFAICT this is a Bulletstorm-specific fork of xliveless, and it allowed the single player campaign to work perfectly (including game saving). If you can get to the main menu without crashing, you're good - I didn't experience a single crash or problem beyond that point. I was able to complete the entire campaign on normal difficult. I did have to turn the resolution and quality settings way down to make the game playable, and even then the game wasn't very smooth. This wasn't too bad since I couldn't play multi-player anyway. Most of the big FPS dips happened immediately after a headshot and very briefly, so it didn't really hurt gameplay and wasn't too annoying. Hardware tested on: i7-3630QM 32Gb 1600MHz DDR3 GeForce GTX 660M Nvidia 352.55 drivers The Wine prefix used was 32-bit.

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
