Additional Comments

I'm playing with full resolution and effects, and that's a big success. I compiled wine on my machine, version 1.7.1. It's important to disable IM (Input Method), because it's currently unusable: wine has removed its locks, and IM code is currently static and unprotected, and continually crashes: set /HKCU/Software/Wine/X11 Driver/UseXIM = 0. That's all folks.

HowTo / Notes

Increasing in-game performance
Increasing in-game performance


If you have experienced performance degradation please deactivate dynamic shadows and antialiasing from game graphic menu. Also set proprietary driver image settings to Maximum Performance. This helps for weak graphic cards like NVIDIA Geforce 120 GT.

Please note - If your mouse/keyboard isn't working then it's most likely a rawinput issue, please upgrade your wine to at least version 1.6 since wine has had rawinput built into it for about 12 minor releases now.

If you have mouse and in-game lags, set dinput to native in winecfg - Libraries tab
In some cases sound disappeared, it can be fixed by setting dsound to native as above.
If you have poor performance in multiplayer, set winhttp to native as above.

temperature too high

Currently, I'm undergoing frequent shutdowns because the cpu temperature reaches an eccessive value. I didn't have such problem using Wine 1.5.8, but I don't know, my sistem has changed since then, there are many variables at work.

At the resume/load game/new game/... screen all my 4 cpus are already at steady 50%.
