      Additional Comments

      Reasons for Gold Rating: Multicore Rendering problems. Performance - In certain sections of a maps FPS is very low (5 - 10) Texture quality - even on 'Very High' setting, textures look poor. Stutter / short freezes - Disturbing water and using the flash light for the first time causes this. Mouse behaviour - see above. Fonts - If MS 'corefonts' is not installed through 'winetricks' or system wide through your distribution's package manager the game crashes / 'Tahoma' font is recommended to be installed, otherwise some fonts look disjointed.

      HowTo / Notes


      If you would like Day of Defeat: Source to get more attention please vote for it!

      So some things I've noticed that you need to get Day of Defeat to run better are:

      • Alsa-drivers (including all librarys and utils) >=1.0.13 (gets rid of weird sounds for me)
        • Also make sure to use the oss driver not the alsa driver. If you exerience weird sound issues using emulation instead of hardware.
      • Graphics driver for Nvidia users >=1.0.8774, ATI users >=8.29.6 (just out of curiousity has anyone with any other graphics card i.e. intel, sis, via, etc...gotten this to work?)
        • The betas from Nvidia work well also.
      • Xorg-x11 >=7.0 (anything less gets a performance hit for some reason (anyone else experience this?)
        • For both of the following make sure these are under the Depth 24. Day of Defeat: Source only plays at 32-bit (Depth 24)
        • For all 4:3 aspect ratios to show up in game, include the following in your xorg.conf:
          • 640x480
          • 800x600
          • 1024x768
          • 1280x1024
          • 1600x1200
        • For all 16:10 aspect ratio to show up in game, include the following in your xorg.conf:
          • 1280x960
          • 1680x1050
          • 1920x1200
      • If you are compiling this from source (like me a gentoo user) I've tested out a bunch of things and recommend the following versions to compile wine:
        • GCC 4.1.1 (latest stable, slightly larger binaries than 3.4.6 but faster nominally)
          • Currently the newest gcc 4.2 snapshot makes the game randomly crash. So I'd hold off on using the new compiler.
        • GLIBC >=2.4
        • Linux headers (gentoo users) or kernel version (everyone else) >=2.6.17
      • Known to run well on all versions after and including 0.9.23.


      Q: It seems that dod source works once steam as been installed as it is said in the steam section. But once dod is launched, steam stays in focus and obstruct the screen. When I try to lower the steam window, everything freezes and I must reboot the PC, the keyboard is not responding!
      Whats going on?

      A: One of the known bugs with steam is that it always is on top and cannot be minimized, or else the system crashes. So if the steam window is still on your screen when you start your game, simply X out of it instead of trying to minimize it.
