What does not
What was not tested
When you lower the video settings, on my machine, if i set to high or medium is playable for a short time, like 20 or tops 30 minutes, but, after that, the game crashes. AntiAliasing need to be setted to None, if i set to 2x, the trees became flat (like 2D textures), and more than 2x the game crash. I've tryed on a clean prefix, also tryed to install DirectX, secur32, OpenAL and vcrun (2005,2008,2010). My Config: AMD Phenom II x6 1090T 3.2GHz, 8GB DDR3 1600MHz Nvidia GeForce GTX460 with 310.19 Proprietary drivers Debian Wheezy i686 with PAE, Resolutions: 1600x1050 and 1920x1080

First of all, thank you for spend your time helping wine to get better,
These are just suggestions to make tests result more clean and more fast to be submitted.
First, install the game from your CD, open the CD folder on your unix and run the setup.exe as any other normal software, then download here the patch 1.03 and install-it on the same prefix as FarCry 2.
Be sure that you have 3D support is working, you can check by typing the follow command:
glxinfo | grep "direct rendering:"
It's also recomended to install the following fonts: tahoma.ttf, arial.ttf and verdana.ttf.
The game shoud work fine. Any problem you can see the Troubleshoot notes and post a coment or submit a bug.
This is a known bug, until now we don't know how to fix-it. Just set AntiAliasing to None in game settinhs.
FarCry 2 crash when AntiAliasing is more than 2x.
AntiAliasing isn't working right on FarCry 2, the best thing is to keep disabled.
FayCry 2 randomly crashes.
This is related to the Bug #23045, until now, the best solution is to install secur32 trought winetrick. But even for some people, that solution doensn't work fine, the best thing in that cases is to lower the video settings, it seems that lower video settings has less crash, if that is your case, don't use anything beyond High on graphics settings.
