What works

Nearly everything was tested (long multiplayer& singleplayer sessions)

What does not

o Broken Configuration menu

o Sometimes it is necessary to kill pulseaudio in order to have a good sound (I think this problems relates with wine+pulseaudio since every other program works fine)

o If I use directx9 i have sometimes (after a great battle) out_of_memory exceptions but I have also a very weak graphic card (nvidia quadro). Setting to directx7 solved it for me.

Additional Comments

If you run over steam invisible font problem the easiest solution is to deactive dwrite.dll. Following steps are necessary: 1. $ winecfg 2. Libraries 3. New override for library 4. Insert here dwrite 5. edit --> disable Now when the game is installed try to start it. If you noticed a broken config menu don't worry - everything is changeable in rgl_config.txt If you have a slow GPU it makes sense to set to Directx7. Just change the 'use_pixel_shaders' and 'use_vertex_shaders' attributes in rgl_config.txt to 0. This forces the game to run with dx7. You will also have a bad performance if you don't set force_single_threading = 1 in the rgl_config.txt. If you have a optimus board (e.g. netbook with intel graphic+nvidia) you can either run steam with optirun (bumblee package) or primusrun (primus: primusrun is new and has some great advantages. E.g. games like World of Warcraft/Minecraft/Counter Strike: GO run twice as fast as with optirun. But: Mount and Blade seems to be an exception. I have run into microlags (fps drops) so just use optirun to play it. If you have sound problems (e.g. missing or glichting sound) it may help to change the settings of pulseaudio (view for further details): 1. # nano /etc/pulse/daemon.conf 2. (...) default-fragments = 16 default-fragment-size-msec = 50 But I'm not sure if this is really helping since my positive experience with this entry maybe simple gained by restarting pulseaudio. But it is worth a try and it makes sense for me. I didn't run over mouse problems but if you have one just take a look at other reports. My system is: CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2670QM CPU @ 2.20GHz GPU: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09) NVIDIA Corporation GF119 [Quadro NVS 4200M] (rev ff) With dual monitor setting, running M&B on fullscreen. Gold instead for platinum for some tweaks that are necessary to get a decent framerate. Have fun!

HowTo / Notes

Low FPS Solution
If you're getting low FPS with Warband, try the following: Enable single threading. Open the "~/.wine/drive_c/users/your_user_name/My Documents/Mount&Blade Warband/rgl_config.txt" (change the path to reflect your Warband installation) configuration file and set "force_single_threading" attribute to 1.
