Most everything, looks and runs great!
What does not
finishing the intro without the secure32 dll override
What was not tested
I didn't test multiplayer
I did need to install secur32 via winetricks to get past the intro or the game would crash. It looks like http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=23045 is still happening. I am using a 32bit prefix, wasn't clean. Here is the list of installed settings for my winetricks: d3dx10 d3dx9 d3dx9_26 d3dx9_28 d3dx9_31 d3dx9_35 d3dx9_36 d3dx9_39 d3dx9_42 d3dx9_43 directx9 dotnet20 mdx secur32 steam vcrun2005 xact xact_jun2010 xinput ====== I was able to run the game on 'high' for most settings with acceptable performance. Tested on Macbook Pro 13" (early 2015) CPU: Core i5 2.9 GHz RAM: 8GB RAM GPU: Intel Iris Graphics 6100 OSX: 10.11.5

This notes was updated: December 15 - 2012
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.
