Additional Comments

This is more to give an update on how to install this game: You don't need to install into a virtual machine or windows partition, as the previous test data shows. Instead go to winecfg and in advanced options replace (TM) with â„¢ (after UNLEAHSED) for your mounted disk. The installer will then recognise the disk correctly, your Linux distribution will still reference the device via /dev/loopX. Easy. winetricks d3dx9 vcrun2005 vcrun2008 vcrun2010 + PhysX 9.10 from disk Other than that, I was getting about 3fps, so didn't both with it. This looks like it'd be gold for anyone with good enough hardware to run it. My hardware is: Intel N2830 Processor 2.16Ghz 4GB DDR3 PCL-10600 ram Intel HD Graphics Bay Trail
