Powerslide is a fast-paced, 3d racing game set in a post-apocolyptic world. What else needs to be said?
Make sure you run Powerslides' own config utility, ps_clo.exe under WINE and make sure "nopollsound" is selected.
options work to some degree
What does not
cannot be run from cd, need to apply a no-cd patch to play game
General game sounds are a bit laggy, wine complains of DSOUND_MixOne problem with underrun detection (mixlen=2448 < primary_done=5720).
Disabling sound at this point in time would be a good idea using winecfg. Saves having to hear general choppiness coming through your speakers :)
What was not tested
Network usability. Needs IPX to run as it uses DirectPlay lobby.
Just have to tweak it a little to get it running.
