What works

Direct3d HAL, 800x600x32, D3D Hardware T&L, w/ default Options)
* Uninstall via "wine uninstaller" (without quotes); manually removed

What does not

~ Attempting to move Max Payne around smoothly is impossible;
while I can get him to do his jump/roll move by pressing
shift+movement key and that works smoothly, holding any movement
key (up, down, left, right) seems to pause the game and the game
resumes when the key is lifted. If I tap a movement key, Max Payne
will slowly move a tiny bit, but he can't move the way he normally
should, and I don't know why. Is this a bug? I tried reconfiguring
the keys but it had the same effect. Other than this issue, the game
appears like it would work perfectly.


What was not tested

- Gameplay past 5 minutes (since movement of Max Payne is impaired)
- Windowed mode

Additional Comments

+ Is anyone else experiencing this movement pause bug? Or is this a configuration issue? I can't see any way to resolve this in options. Is it an NVIDIA issue?
