What works

Installs and runs well.

Cut scenes seem to play fine. Works fine with Hitman's Direct3D mode.

Requires 640x480 resolution for the intro, so make sure you've got that in your xorg.conf.

Needed "UseDirectInputMouse 1" and "UseDirectInputKeyboard 1" in HitmanContracts.ini - thanks chaykin.

What does not

Had to disable "Post Filter", otherwise the video under the main menu would scroll up the screen continuously (like a tv that's lost vertical sync).

Blood and some other textures look a little weird.

Sounds can get a little crackly, but I get that in other games in wine so it might just be my card (onboard CK804).


What was not tested

Only played up until the second level so far.

Additional Comments

Needed to use "wine eject" during install to get to the second CD. Running with the 1.74 patch and no-cd crack (gives securom error otherwise). Game seems to play fine so far.
