What works

  • Installation
  • configurator
  • various unofficial translation patches (russian)
  • game itself

it runs much faster than with 0.9.x wine as for i remember

What does not

game works but there are a lot of glitches and issues like:

  • sometimes, instead of dropping FPS game drops character\camera speed but keeps same speed for world. it's especially bad if someone chasing you
  • (probably same in native environment = engine bug)

  • graphical effects out of place/corrupted or not present with no errors\warnings in log
  • lips out of sync
  • fps drops with no apparent reason


What was not tested

  • videos
  • much of the gameplay

HowTo / Notes

Vertical Synchronization

if you experience slowdown in moving speed of your character, try to disable VSync in your X drivers

if your picture is choppy some times, try to toggle it on.

(way to do so is different for all drivers)

The movement of the main character is axtremely slow in comparison with windows installation. Timed missions are unplayable. Tried to turn off vsync. No iprovement. Ubuntu linux 9.04, wine 1.1.25

Try disabling strict draw ordering. Worked like a charm for me.
