Game version 252. Game is technically playable, but is plagued by several serious issues including random crashes on startup/connect. It's possible to launch the game, setup graphic options & key bindings and join in game servers. Steam In-game Overlay works during the game. However, you can't play tutorial (uses local server which does not work) or watch tutorial videos (crashes).
What does not
What was not tested
Wine was compiled using 32-bit libs. Rating this as Bronze as there are several serious issues which will affect to normal application use. Common problems * When starting the game Steam runs DirectX install every time. * When starting the game it might crash with: err:seh:raise_exception Unhandled exception code c0000005 Crashing seems to be random and not related what settings are selected in the game. * Selecting hints & tips video will crash the game. * Connecting to local server (tutorial and optimize uses this) does not work as game is stuck at connect phase. It's possible to use developer console to quit the game as there is no way to stop the connect attempt from game interface. Also it's possible to skip optimizing as it is automatically done during next server connect. * DX11 renderer does not work because of unimplemented function d3d11.dll.D3D11CreateDeviceAndSwapChain. When trying to launch the game using DX11, bug report dialog will pop up. Changing back to DX9 is possible by editing game config file. DX9 Renderer performance on main menu scene (AMD Phenom II x4 B55, NVidia 275GTX): * 33-35 frames per second (based on settings menu FPS counter) All graphics detail options off except medium textures, 1920x1080, PhysX off, v-sync off * 17-18 frames per second (based on settings menu FPS counter) All graphics detail options on/at high setting, medium textures, 1920x1080, PhysX off, v-sync off * In-game frame rates on low settings are about 20-25 on complex rooms, 30+ on corridors/small rooms.
