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.
