What works

  • Skirmish
  • Multiplayer
For the most part everything works depending on your hardware.

What does not

Starting the game in fullscreen will not work. You must change the config settings before starting the game to disable full screen. Once you get in game you should be able to switch to full screen just fine.

Also, changing settings in game tends to make the game hang. However, this seems to only be the case on AMD hardware, Intel seems to handle setting changes just fine.


What was not tested

I haven't done a full fledged battle, but that's about all I haven't tested.

HowTo / Notes


You must have a clean wine prefix and your wine version cannot be any higher than 1.6.x. You must also have the latest graphics drivers installed and if you are using ATI, you must have the proprietary drivers installed. You must also have a 32-bit wine prefix as well.

Just set WINEARCH=win32 before you run wine and it should create a 32-bit prefix for you.

For the most part, just install winetricks and run this,

 winetricks corefonts dxfullsetup dotnet40 msxml3 vcrun2005 vcrun2008 vcrun2010 xact_jun2010 fontsmooth=rgb
Once you have all those installed, just run the setup inside the wine prefix and just keep it checked at the end and press finish. The game will start and probably freeze up at the logo, but if it does, just do CTRL+ALT+F2 (or whatever your distro has to get to a diff run level), login and run "killall UDK.exe". This should end the process and you can now go to the game's location and edit the config. The config is located in "drive_c/Program Files/Renegade X/UDKGame/Config". You want to edit the UDKSystemConfig.ini and set FullScreen to False. Now you should be able to start the game up and you should not have any problems with it locking up.
Unstable Wine
Do not try to use wine 1.7+, the game will not even start and it will crash instantly. I'm not sure what they added in 1.7, but it affects the way .NET is processing the game.

Since this is a UT3 game, please refer to the UT3 page for problems you might be having as well.
