Selected Test Results

What works

  • the entire campaign,
  • native resolution (in-game by default),
  • minimizing the game,
  • all of the game modes,
  • instant action mode...

Probably the entire game works just fine. Game runs as smooth as on Windows.

What does not

Everything works fine.

Workarounds

What was not tested

  • Multiplayer game (LAN and internet),
  • Galactic Conquest mode (but it's based on conquest mode, which works fine, mode's UI doesn't crash, so it's alright)

Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

I wasn't able to test patch 1.1 - it installs without any problems, but it seems, that with this patch DRMs were also updated - the game doesn't accept my DVD on version 1.1, but it also should work fine, because 1.1 contains only bug fixes. Game's map loading times may be longer than on Windows (game loads ~10 seconds on Windows, ~40 seconds on Wine 2.10).

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO

(Updated: Before 2009-05-12 for unknown version of Wine)

Well first you install BF2 out of the dvd and you run it in terminal by using

wine /PATH_TO_THE_GAME/LaunchBFII.exe (IF UR GAME LAUNCHES WITHOUT ANY PROBS AND JUST THE SOUND DISABLED DONT DO THE FOLLOWING STEPS)

and look for any fixme errors i got three one about displayDevices, another about clipping the mouse and THE MOST IMPORTANT one was about alsa mixer MPU-401 MIDI i had found that key in the registry and deleted it (it disabled the sound in all games, oh foolish me i didnt make a back-up). Deleting that key enabled me to run the game without it crashing at startup. RUN THE GAME FROM LAUNCHER OTHERWISE IT WONT WORK (cause the launcher has to ask you if you want to continue with no sound cause i got it disabled.

I assume if you loaded a native dsound.dll to wine's system32, you would get the sound working without removing the keys from registry. Although i couldnot test it cause i cannot retrieve my registry key :'(
