What works

Note the demo of Richard Burns Rally was tested!

The game is installable and playable.


Graphics card: Sapphire ATI X1950XTX PCIe 512 MB

FGLRX driver version: 8.37.6

What does not

Going back to the menu crashes the game.

Last lines of output:

fixme:d3d:get_src_and_opr Unhandled texture arg WINED3DTA_SPECULAR

The game didn't start after install without some tweaking. I hade to change the Graphics Quality settings to low (from the Video Settings application belonging to the game). Otherwise the computer would freeze totally with a repeating sound, even in window mode. Also I changed some elements in the user.reg file in directory .wine/ (in the user folder).

These elements where changed to:

[Software\\Wine\\Direct3D] 1193139113

I've a feeling that the value of VideoMemorySize was the important thing here. I copied the code above from a thread on this site. Though the value of UseGLSL was enable, I changed it to disable because of very bad performance.

HowTo / Notes

Disappearing Trees/Buildings/Other

If you are having trouble with trees, buildings and other things disappearing after a period of time, try disable GLSL (for wine-0.9.58 onwards).
