The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
Install, menus, sound... gameplay
What does not
Exterior Cells (see extra comments)
What was not tested
First of all I am using an ATI HD2600 with catalyst 8.9 (newest driver as of writing.) All other drivers did not work. I have the following Direct3D registry edits on a standard install of wine DirectDrawRenderer=OpenGL OffscreenRenderingMode=backbuffer (pbuffer would crash game) UseGLSL=enabled VideoMemorySize=512 Changing the graphics from very low to very high (bloom included) did not change FPS at all. NPCs and plants decrease my framerate a lot (less than 10) otherwise its 20+ Exterior cells have severe graphical corruption (small plants seem to cause massive lines through screen) Traversing exterior cells, new ones do not load the majority of ground texture (invisible ground) Decreasing resolution from 1280x768 to 640x480 improved FPS about 3-5 Other than that it seems pretty standard with slow videos, appearing and disappearing grass, incorrect lightning spells, and water with lines through it. If exterior cells worked the game would be GOLD!

A bug present (8128) renders the game virtually useless due to not being able to load or save the game properly. Keep this in mind if you intend to play as you won't be able to get very far or at least continue.
Bug 8128 is NOT a Wine bug. Please install an official patch.
