Additional Comments

This installation took numerous attempts and many hours, but eventually after a tweaking about with wine and modding some of the game files got this working smoothly. The game has some really nice postprocess effects such as (SSAO) AmbientOcclusion, Bloom, MotionBlur and Refraction but these can really effect performance negatively. Installed Windows Components: Microsoft .NET Framework Version 2.0, Microsoft DirectX Redistributable, Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 and Windows Media Format 11 Runtime. Graphic Settings & PostProcessing Mods: Manually edit "Video.scr" (to adjust setting not accessible ingame) Manually edit variables to disable PostProcess effects (SSAO)AmbientOcclusion, Bloom, MotionBlur and Refraction.
