HowTo / Notes


 If you get the following error and performance issues:

fixme:d3d_surface:fb_copy_to_texture_direct Doing a pixel by pixel copy from the framebuffer to a texture, expect major performance issues

 Adding the following Registry key should help:

HKCU/Software/Wine/Direct3D: OffscreenRenderingMode = "fbo"


Also if you have a black menu when the game starts, or graphic errors, you can set the following Registry Key:

HKCU/Software/Wine/Direct3D: UseGLSL = "disabled"


(this also increases the performance strongly)

(see for further information)

Make the game look better

To force antialiasing in the game, run this in a terminal:


export __GL_FSAA_MODE

wine /path/to/your/Vampire.exe -game Unofficial_Patch
