Additional Comments

The file 'logo.avi' isn't displayed at all at the beginning; the sound stutters badly (lots of buffer underruns). I used a GIT version of wine (wine-0.9.30-g1df72cc), and installed the game in windows, but I patched it in wine; I used a no-cd. Wine crashes with: wine: Unhandled page fault on read access to 0x00000000 at address 0x580953 (thread 0009), starting debugger... WineDbg starting on pid 0008 Unhandled exception: page fault on read access to 0x00000000 in 32-bit code (0x00580953).

At last, I tried with CVS Cedega, but it was even worse than with wine.

Fix to the
by Rief on Sunday August 30th 2009, 10:03
With wine 1.1.27 you can fix the bug of mouse escaping adding a new string in the register. Open regedit, go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software -> Wine, make a new key named "DirectInput" and n this key make a new string named "MouseWarpOverride" with value "force". Tested with both fullscreen and windowed modes with Arx Fatalis 1.18.
