Additional Comments

Winetricks: I Used the suggested winetricks from the other tests. Here is the output of my winetricks list-installed: corefonts d3dcompiler_43 d3dx10 d3dx11_43 d3dx9_26 d3dx9_28 d3dx9_31 d3dx9_43 d3dx9 directx9 dotnet20 dotnet30sp1 dotnet35sp1 dotnet35 dotnet40 msxml3 physx vcrun2008 vcrun2010 xact_jun2010 xact xinput Exisiting Overrides: dwrite (disabled) gameoverlayrenderer (disabled) mscoree (native) msxml3 (native) Window Settings: All window settings are unchecked (automatically capture mouse, allow the window manager to decorate windows, etc). System: Video Card: Nvidia GTX 280 using drivers 331.20-1 Ram: 8GB CPU: i5-2500K (4GHz) Kernel: 3.12.1 Problems: Resolution: When I first installed the game, the resolution was 1024x768, and setting it to native (1920x1080) changed the resolution of the game but not my display. I had to set it to native and restart the game (after fixing my display) for it to start properly. Startup: Sometimes the game doesn't start. It feels random. Forum users suggested verifying the steam cache until it works. That worked for me. Or coincidence. I thought it might be the window manager, but that's not it. If it doesn't start, check your processes because one core was maxed out for me. I think this might be a problem with the game, and not a problem with wine, but I mention it for completeness.
