HowTo / Notes

  • 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
