What works

As far as I can tell, everything in single player.

What does not

Minor rendering issues with shadows: Appear semi-transparent and on top of (instead of behind) the object casting the shadow.

Sound (I use ALSA and the ALSA driver in wine) has stuttering and looping. As sometimes a new sound isn't played until the previous one finishes, sometimes radio messages come quite late.


What was not tested


The Red Hammer and Resistance campaigns

3rd party addons

Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

I have the GOTY edition, and have to use flashpointresistance.exe, because operationflashpoint.exe fails due to copy protection.

HowTo / Notes


Install graphic card drivers, with native OpenGL. Do not enable TwinView, or dual screen.

On 64-bit systems, the 32-bit graphic driver libs need to be installed too, other wise the game wont start, complaining about missing DirectX.

Copy all files from a windows installation, as they are, to the wine drive.
(Contents of C:\Program Files\Codemasters\OperationFlashpoint)

Save your ID from a windows registry in a .reg file, with these two keys:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Codemasters\Operation Flashpoint]
"MAIN"="C:\\Program Files\\Codemasters\\OperationFlashpoint"

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Codemasters\Operation Flashpoint]
"Player Name"="Your Name"

Apply these registry settings in your Wine instance. Verify them, as you may need to set these manually within the regedit of wine.

Start the game with "wine FLASHPOINTBETA.EXE -nosplash [-mod=@YourMod] .."

Once the game started, start a wine task manager with: "wine taskmgr" and set the CPU affinity for the flashpoint process to a single CPU. Other wise there will be massive lag in multiplayer after a few minutes.
