What works

Mostly everything

What does not

issues with microphone,
(people couldn't hear me, didn't really look for the cause).

Some objects will light through walls. (Fix avail, look in comments)

Felt some stuttering in performance.  (Fix avail, look in comments)

Joining someone from Steam (by invite or join game in friends) seems to fail by connecting to localhost instead of the actual sever. 

Steam in-game overlay,
does not work correctly and may crash the game, you are recommended to disable the overlay for this game.

Additional Comments

General notes: Game works good except for issues mentioned above. ___________ Performance: Generally OK, though the lightning/stuttering issue is noticeable. __GL_THREADED_OPTIMIZATIONS=1, gives lower performance in all cases. Wine CS-0.8 fixes lightning/stuttering issues and improves performance up to 100%* in some cases. If you still get stuttering try cl_forcepreload 1 in game console. *Again, up to but on lowest avg it gives about 10-20% up to 100% depending on scenery. ____________ Tested with: Driver: nVidia 340.17 GPU : nVidia Zotac GTX 670AMP! Kernel: 3.14.8-1-ck

HowTo / Notes

Test Submissions ... how to avoid a rejection notice!!

These notes were last updated: 22 April 2021, after being burrowed from Battlefield 2 WineHQ page.

Follow these guidelines to avoid embarrassment when your Test Submission is immediately rejected!!

  • Ensure the version of Wine you have installed is update-to-date and supported (hint: if it isn't - then it won't be in the drop-down list).
  • Put your PC specifications in the Extra Comments section e.g. like your CPU and system memory (See below).
  • When adding test results please specify video card and driver version you are using (See below).
  • It's also useful to mention what Desktop Environment you are using (e.g. KDE/Plasma, Gnome, Xfce, Budgie, Mate, Cinnamon, ...)
  • Specify if you installed the Battlefield 2 into a fresh Wineprefix (or not), and what other programs and games you have installed (for existing Wineprefix's).
  • Specify what version of the Windows compatibility you use for your Wineprefix (e.g. Windows XP, Windows 7). Specify if you override this for the Steam client executable.
  • Specify whether you installed into a 32-bit or a 64-bit Wineprefix.
  • Add detailed comments about what is not working for you.
  • Please check known issues - like terrian texture settings - which may vary by graphics card vendor / driver version.
  • Please indicate if you've applied additional patches to the version of Wine you are using.

Please, don't submit test results like "Everything is working" or "Everything isn't working".

These guidelines ensure your submitted test results are actually relevant to other users of Wine and WineHQ.

The console version of the lshw utility is your friend. This command will dump your System hardware specification in a clean format. Post command and output in the Extra Comments section:
sudo lshw -short | egrep -v '(volume|disk|bus)'

The glxinfo utility can be used to display your OpenGL and graphics driver versions. Post the command and output in the Extra Comments section:
glxinfo -B


You can't start the game with certain Ati/AMD cards; At least some 6xxx series and 7870 is affected and reported against Fedora distribution (See

It's known issue.

You need to change your vendor and device of your card (and set memory size too to avoid other crashes)

Here is a guide:

Some users said to be using these values to get it work in Registry:

"I used the value of "0x10de" for the VendorID and "0x0402" for the DeviceID."

[FIXED in 1.7.38] Multiple Steam games crash on keypress with in-game community overlay enabled

Disable steam overlay from steam settings.
