What works

Bought MtG 2012 with Expansion Set from Steam. Game works quite well without crashes (except one, see Possible Problems). Gameplay is a bit laggy even when graphics settings are at minimum possible (GT 8800 on AMD 64 x2 4200).

  • Singleplayer campaign
  • Playing multiplayer game
  • Hosting multiplayer game
  • Expansion set features
  • Achievements
  • Changing game settings during game (screen resolution, fullscreen)
  • Sound

What does not

  • Game crashes when you are migrated as game host. This means joining to multiplayer game, then host of the multiplayer game quits in the middle of the game and when you are selected as new game host there will be crash. However, playing and hosting multiplayer game works well when all players are connected.
  • Gameplay is laggy with NVidia GT 8800 512MB on AMD dual core 4200. This is especially problem during multiplayer games. KDE desktop effects are off and game feels as fast on 1024x768 as on 1280x960 so this might be Wine related problem.
  • Mouse cursor shows desktop mouse pointer and when moving around it shows MtG mouse pointer. Mouse targetting also feels a bit laggy.


What was not tested

Microphone as it won't work at all on Steam applications so I didn't bother to waste time with it.

Additional Comments

Game works enough well on Wine to warrant a purchase. Rating as Gold because game crashes when host of the game is migrated. Game install might need winetricks but I installed this on same Wine installation which contains Steam and Left4Dead so look for these applications for winetrick tips.
