Retail CD release
Intro Configuration menu
What does not
Installation. For some reason I was inable to install IGI2 from wine. It displayed the initial progressbar and after filling it on 100% and just before asking for a serial number - the Wine window closes without error, warning or whatever. So I installed under Windows XP (VMWare) and then transferred the Codemasters directory tree to wine.
I ran several tests with different setup options in IGI2 (graphics,sound) and also several tests with different wine options (Windows 2000/XP/2003). The results were different. The weird part is that they were different even with identical setups (sequential runs).
Once I even managed to get the game running, I landed and started moving towards the fence, but then I saw that all of the buildings were invisible, just fences, people and the land features. Oh and cameras hanging in the air :) But that was the only time I managed to get this far. Usually game breaks when the person jumps off the plane (then the music changes and sound buffer underruns start to appear: many messages like this one: err:dsound:DSOUND_MixOne underrun on sound buffer 0x8f10028 ) sound is jerky and the picture hangs.
Everytime I tried to skip the intro I got frozen screen showing the person already on the ground with crosshair visible and ready to play.
What was not tested
I clearly see there are improvements since last time I tried to run IGI2 under wine. Back then the game would only start and allow me to see the initial screen and then immediately hangs.
