Additional Comments

For playing this game, i had to: * for this game in Steam add parameter -dx9 * recompile wine with patch from bug 34658 Note1: You can even play this game with all dlls builtin except d3dx9_33.dll. Note2: Silver, because DX10 part of the game does not work yet.

HowTo / Notes

Choppy sound fix
2015-04-20 Admin note: the following was extracted from a user comment made in 2014 and may not be relevant to current Wine.

I fixed it by changing my systems pulse audio sampling frequency to 44100 Hz, it was 48 kHz before.
