Selected Test Results

What works

  • Game installs with one version of win
  • Game plays with another version of wine
  • All 3D at maximum work
  • GLSL however has to be disabled for the flashlight to work

What does not

  • Input is kind of weird. Some num lock keys do not work as intended. Mouse is somewhat twitchy and is too fast.
  • Flashlight does not work without GLSL disabled


What was not tested

  • Extended gameplay. Played more than one hour on it and even got the flashlight to work, but there's no guarantee it will go to the end.

Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

It works perfectly after you fine-tune it, but you have to do some magic! - Installs with wine 1.5-raw3 - Plays ok in other versions of wine. If it shows video memory errors, upgrade your wine version. Maybe use winetricks to set you videocardmemory on the registry to the correct one. In latest winetricks you can perform winetricks videocardmemory=4096 (for a 4 GiB card) - Better if you play it through playonlinux, because it has a configuration settings on display that allows you to set GLSL to off. - Yoy might have to install d3x9_43 (via playonlinux also).
