|Latest Wine Version Tested:||3.4|
Maintainers: About Maintainership
almost everything, game runs flawlessly, all features are working
What does not
sometimes bug 34052 occurs (Character models are sometimes invisible), on my computer one per 10-20 runs
What was not tested
Be sure to have 1.7.6 version or later. From 1.7.0 to 1.7.5 in game music was not working. I would give platinum, but because of bug 34052 it has gold rating. Admin note: rating changed to conform to the rating definitions.

If you are hit by bug #34052 (invisible character models), or flickering, set this key in the registry as a workaround (it happens on closed Nvidia driver, and to some on Mesa / Intel. It didn't happen to me with Mesa / radeonsi):
Another similar issue is bug #46553 when some textures turn black indoors. For now, install d3dx9_35 native override to work around that.

I'm using wine staging 4.5 and nvidia-drivers. With default parameters, the game was crashing very often.
From  I discovered that the game is randomly crashing, even on windows, often when (auto)saving.
I turned off auto-saving feature in game parameters, and since I did it, I was able to play the game several hours without crash. You'll then have to remember to save regularly your progression.

1. uncomment 'ru_RU.UTF-8' in /etc/locale.gen
2. sudo locale-gen
3. sudo reboot
4. modify game launch options in steam client: LANG=ru_RU.UTF-8 %command%
Run the game. Russian language, no crashes!

If you are using an NVidia card and see corrupt graphics, for instance
- invisible characters with only eyes and mouths drawn
- mostly correct characters with polygons running out of them
You need to set the HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Wine/Direct3D/CheckFloatConstants registry key to "enabled".
See bug 34052 for more details.
