Vampire: The Masquerade: Redemption

­Nice Vampire-RPG, with 3D graphics, multiplayer support and a good story (including timeshifting).

Feel What It Is To Be Immortal.

Before your fall, you led a crusade against evil. Now you've become one of the undead creatures you once battled-a Vampire. Inhabiting the World of Darkness, you must face a series of brutal confrontations with your nemesis, Vukodlak, a powerful vampire lord. Your unholy show­down begins in medieval Europe and rages on into the modern day, as you track a soulless enemy in an eternal struggle to destroy him. For this is the only hope of vengeance for your tortured immortality.

What works

Installation, and then the game, in all its fullscreen glory.  Cut scenes, textures, everything is rendering flawlessly on an old GeForce4 MX4000.  

I was very pleased to see everything look just as it should with all the in game display settings all the way up.  This game had some issues in previous versions of Wine where things would go black after cut scenes, but I haven't had that problem.  

What does not

For some odd reason, after playing for a while, the sound will cut out, but a quick restart restores it. 

I'm assuming its an issue with my setup, and I'm investigating it as we speak.. basically wine complains about ALSA overflow/underflow.  Its probably my junky on-board VIA sound chip.  On the bright side though, the sound is perfect while it works..no skipping or any of the annoying foolishness that Wine-driven games can tend to give.

Additional Comments

Here's my winecfg settings that I used to run the game. I fiddled a lot with these AFTER I installed it, but I'm assuming that these will work for the installer as well. Windows 98 mode DON'T allow DirectX apps to control mouse DON'T allow the WM to decorate the windows DON'T allow the WM to control the windows DON'T emulate a virtual desktop (try this for the install though) disable Vertex and Pixel Shader support I've currently got Audio Hardware Acceleration on Full, but again, my particular system sucks, so play with these settings; your mileage may vary. I'm sure most of you will not even have the above issue. Before you can play, you'll have to first obtain the 1.1 update and a compatible no-CD crack (make sure its for 1.1). I had to beat my head against the monitor a few times before I found a working one, but do a google search for it and you'll find it. Once you install the update and then the crack (in that order, of course) you just cd to the directory and 'wine Vampire.exe', and you're all set!
