What works

I started with a clean wineprefix. No changes or overrides made, did check the option for emulate a virtual desktop. Everything works 100%, in-game videos, audio and gameplay.

Running the game with all settings maxed out, resolution of 1600x1200, smooth framerate.

My system:

Core2Duo E6750 2.66Ghz
Nvidia GeForce 9800 GTX+ 512MB  Nvidia drivers: 295.49
Intel HD Audio

HowTo / Notes

How to fix lighting and shadow effects.

For Windows and Linux systems who have newer video cards:

The shadow placements may be incorrect and therefore spotlight beams, flash light beams and ceiling light beams may not appear.

To fix this do the following:

  1. In the game folder go to SYSTEM folder and open SplinterCell.ini file with text editor. 
  2. Find block [D3DDrv.D3DRenderDevice] 
  3. Add or change (if string exists) ForceShadowMode=1 to ForceShadowMode=0
  4. Save the edited file
PlayStation 3 HD textures

The textures from the PlayStation 3 port of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell are higher definition and can be installed by overwriting the existing textures. 

The HD textures are mostly faithful to the original textures.
