Additional Comments

** Graphical glitches that I have found in 1.3.15: - Water waves sometimes appear as black moving squares; - Some characters / objects / vehicles or even surface reflections have black squares flickering around them; - A lot of particles appear as black dots / squares instead of their true form; - Some faint surface flickering may be noticed in interior areas. ** What is different in 1.3.16: - A lot of „black dots/squares” problems are not present anymore, but: - Explosions can sometimes generate other black squares; - Game scopes (reflex / assault / sniper) may display incorrectly (i.e.: with parts of it randomly cut off). ** Performance is very good considering the fact that this title is expected to have the best visuals among games. ** Specs: - Intel Core2Duo E8400 @ 4.0 GHz - 4GB Corsair DDR3 @1800 MHz - Nvidia 9800 GTX (w/ nvidia-settings overclock) - driver version 270.18 ** STEPS: 1. Download latest wine sources 2. Patch with latest XInput2 diff (eliminates mouse warping problems -entirely-, not just for Crysis) from (as of time of writing, latest diff is from 08.03.2011) 3. Create a new WINEPREFIX set to WinXP and run "winetricks vcrun2005sp1 vcrun2008 d3dx9 d3dx10 d3dxof". Nothing else should be necessary! =. Setting a MouseWarpOverride is not needed! =. It might also be a good idea to add these registry options in \HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct3D DirectDrawRenderer = opengl OffscreenRenderingMode = fbo RenderTargetLockMode = readtex UseGLSL = disabled ** NOTE 1: Sometimes, the game will not display correctly if you enter the campaign right after startup. I have found that I can work around this by going to Extras and choosing the Nanosuit Showroom, wait for that to load and then go back to the main menu and start the game proper. ** NOTE 2: Sometimes, other applications / processes will strangely interfere with the game. For example, lm_sensors can make the in-game graphics have a general red glow. ** I have given it a Silver rating instead of a Platinum because of the graphical glitches and because of the slightly annoying workaround. The game also has a couple of loose bolts here and there that slightly interfere with gameplay (which is why I can't give it a Gold rating). Other than that, I have to congratulate Wine and its entire team for the fact that Crysis 2 works splendidly. Apart from those few issues, performance and stability are both outstanding! Personally I did not have any crashes / slow-down moments.
