When adding test results please specify video card and driver version you are using.
Options and config mostly works
Video stress test works for me at all -dxlevel 's but does display skins wrong in the test
Find Server ; Create Server ; Favorites ; History all work
Game WILL run from ntfs partition. Steam cannot run from ntfs partition but the "steamapps" folder can be linked to an ntfs partition. The how to should be edited to show tell this. For those with a dual boot this is nice because you dont have to put the CS:S game files on both partitions.
What does not
Can not alt+tab out of game. It flashes the screen and returns you to game.
Can not shift+tab to steam community
color correction in the advanced video options
Higher resolutions can cause the game to crash
What was not tested
Voice communication - i didn't have a mic to test I'll assume it doesn't work as others have said
My computer specs:email@example.comGhz 2GB-PC6400 8600GTS-256mb video driver appears to be nvidia-glx-new 169.12 No Voice communication puts it at bronze even thought the rest of CSS works platinum. I consider the friends list being a steam issue not CSS. Tested *with* compiz and pulseaudio with "-width 1024 -height 768 -heapsize 512000 -dxlevel90" video stress test gave avg 184 fps with all video settings on highest available but in game I got 18-150fps mostly stayed around 50fps but ran smoothly. When fps gets below 60 in windows the game is all but unplayable but here it still worked well. Note on steam: windows will not leave the given desktop area. you can

All things going well, this game will work in current versions of wine (wine-1.0.1 and up) if you:
cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Steam && WINEDEBUG=-all wine steam -applaunch 240
Note: Your path might differ, depending on language and installation directory. This is default for English install.
Note2: Additional command line options go after-applaunch * not before. Ex: -applaunch 240 -dxlevel 80 -console
For better graphics quality you might want to use -dxlevel 90 command option and enable GLSL shaders via registry (save this to a "file.reg" then import with 'wine regedit file.reg'):
Note: GLSL is enabled by default as of wine-0.9.49
For better performance use -dxlevel 80 or even 70 and the following game settings:
cl_drawmonitors 0 r_WaterDrawRefraction 0 r_WaterDrawReflection 0Also you can disable GLSL.
(i) In the past Steam updates have been followed by serious errors running CS:S (or even just steam), including serious lockups. When running after an update, be sure that you're ready to switch to another tty at the first sign of trouble - preferably having a "wineserver -k" sitting ready in it just in case. Just a thought.
(ii) Sound latency issues (skipping, popping as everything struggles to keep up) - most notably sudden lag during firefights can sometimes be cleared up by running "soundlist" in the CS:S console. This is a more general CS:S issue, nothing to do with wine.
If you have other good resource (at least as good as ones above) send vitamin a message with the link.
