Additional Comments

After playing a mission, the next mission will have severe graphical corruption and huge black areas which make them unplayable. Trying to exit MW3 occasionally freezes the whole system. I'm serious, Linux is _frozen_! The transition from a mission back to the briefing tends to crash. Clicking or hovering over buttons is VERY slow. It's not possible to set the renderer ingame, due to a bug that prevents ingame dialog boxes from being clicked. In order to active the (working) DirectDraw HAL renderer, set HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MicroProse\MechWarrior 3\1.0\HWCardDev from 1 to 0
