What works

Santa Monica.

What does not

Upon entering the Venture Building for the first time, the framerate drops to less than 1 fps, making it effectively impossible to interact with NPCs and hence continue the story. The following error message is displayed in the console:

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

This error message pops up in other areas earlier in the game, but the slowdown is not severe enough to stop gameplay.

Also, the menus at the beginning of the game do not display properly, but the workaround mentioned in another post still works.

The water in sewers and elsewhere does not display properly.

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO

 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 http://wiki.winehq.org/UsefulRegistryKeys for further information)

Make the game look better

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

__GL_FSAA_MODE=4

export __GL_FSAA_MODE

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