Additional Comments

I got a new computer with integrated Intel HD 530 (supposed to be better than my previous one), and for several reasons I had to install a new Linux. So I installed Fedora 24, and tried playing VtMB again (it worked fine on my previous computer). I got some of the same glitches I had got before, with an old version of Wine, except that this time I'm trying 1.9.20. I tried upgrading my BIOS, the Intel drivers, and the kind of glitches changed a bit but the end result is the same: unplayable. I believe this will be sorted out in time (possibly by Intel drivers), but until then, I'd like to warn users of the possibility that the game may not work with Intel HD 530 graphics.
