Additional Comments

To make the game work I used a clean win32 wineprefix as starting point and followed the following steps. It worked for me, but I am not sure all of them are actually needed. Definitely with a clean wineprefix the game crashes on start. I installed the game, and killed the setup at the end. It appears a non-responsive window, but everything is correctly installed. I installed OpenAL from http://connect.creativelabs.com/openal/Downloads/Forms/AllItems.aspx (OpenAL Installer for Windows). I used winetricks to fix some d3dx9 problems: winetricks -q d3dx9_36 xinput With winecfg I set openal32 as native. I created this file to setup wine direct3d. To use it change the video memory to match your system, save it and load it with regedit. ------------- >8 REGEDIT4 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct3D] "Multisampling"="enabled" "VideoMemorySize"="1024" ------------- >8 And the game worked quite well. It does not see my wanted resolution, but this problem can work-arounded editing My Documents/Codemasters/GRID/hardwaresettings/hardware_settings_config.xml manually. The game does not exit correctly, it just hangs. Personally I start the game as background job in the shell and when the game hangs unable to quit I use wineserver -k.
