What works

Nothing! Game crashes on load. I've tracked the problem down to some kind of ingame browser (berkelium).

What does not

Everything, game won't load.

Additional Comments

Game tries to use d3dx9_41, but outside of this I had no luck. You can try and run berkelium.exe directly and try and fix that. I tried downloading a different version off the berkelium website and overwrite the game files, the older versions can kind of load in wine but game still fails. I'm out of idea's for now. SI do seem to try and break wine compatibility every new version

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO - Get game running on multicore system

# Launch fm.exe for CPU 0
taskset -c 0 env WINEPREFIX=/path/to /path/to/.../fm.exe

# If you wish reset core affinity when the game starts, assigning fm.exe on all cores.
taskset -p 0xff $(pgrep fm.exe)
