Counter-Strike: Source is the latest release of Counter-Strike, the planet's most popular squad-based Tactical Action FPS, where players co-operate as part of a team to achieve objectives.
When adding test results please specify video card and driver version you are using.
The following was tested and worked:
- Basic Game Play (Running, Gunning... etc.)
- Sound/Audio was clean and clear (Using OSS Audio Driver with Hardware Acceleration set to Basic via the Wine Configuration)
- Direct X Levels (-dxlevel 80, 81, 90)
- Several Maps (Most time was spent on Dust2 and Office)
On this system (Specs Listed Below) via the in-game fps monitor (Command: cl_showfps 1) I received a minimum fps of around 25 and a max peak of close to 80. This is at Direct X level 8.1 and at a resolution of 1920x1080. The current Nvidia driver (180.44) installed is the default offered by Ubuntu 9.04 32bit at the time of this posting. The Wine version (1.0.1) in use is the default offered by Ubuntu 9.04 32bit at the time of this posting. Overall, very expectable by my standards.

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.
