Additional Comments

I had a fresh install of Ubuntu EEE 8.04.1 on my EEE PC 1000 40G, upgraded to Ubuntu 8.10 via update manager, and installed the eeepclite kernel. Received error upon opening the demo exe after the reading contents of package bar finished. "The contents of this file cannot be unpacked. The executable you are attempting to run has been corrupted. Please obtain another copy of the file, verify it's integrity, and try again." It opened fine on my other desktop pc.

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO
  • To allow camera change by holding down the right mouse button, edit input.cfg found in <game dir>/profiles/<profile name> and change MOUSE_AXIS_X & MOUSE_AXIS_Y to 90. The C: drive can normally be found in ~/.wine/drive_c.
  • If the game does not allow you to use a resolution higher than 1024x768, run regedit and add the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct3D, then add the string value VideoMemorySize and set it to the amount of video memory you have
