While the previous games centered around the Valley of Mines and
Khorinis, Gothic 3 moves away from those locations to a newer, larger
environment. This story involves the continent of Myrtana, which is in
the midst of war. Orcs have enslaved the human kingdom with only a few
free humans living in the nearly uninhabitable icy northlands of
Nordmar, the southern desert of Varrant, and the mountainous forests of
the Middle Realm. Players can choose to join the rebellion and stay
true to the deposed human king, serve the Orcish usurpers in their
quest to topple the last remaining human stronghold, or choose a path
that serves their own ends. Every decision made has an impact on the
game world, and tips the in-game balance of power. Given the non-linear
storyline, every game is theoretically unique, with the player
ultimately deciding the fate of humankind. A number of NPCs accompany
the player throughout the game.

What does not
Proper mouse handling. In detail:
At fullscreen mode: rotate player via mouse. Mouse gets stuck at one direction. When moving to opposite direction it works, but also stucks soon. So rotation is quite limited. But rotation using Q/E (default keyboard layout) works well. Issue is mostly relevant for arching, because rotating camera up/down stucks as well. If stuck, returning to title (via ESC), manually realigning cursor (to screen center) helps. So rotation can be continued until the next stuck. Possibly the cursor isn't caught correctly in game mode.
In window mode: Cursor can escape from window after a left click (both: title and game mode). So (especially) melee combat isn't possible.
Problems occured when using Unity, Gnome (Fallback mode) as well as Fluxbox. No other systems were tested.
What was not tested
No other mods are tested. Gameplay beyond area of Ardea (starting village) wasn't tested.
Tested with d3dx10 and dotnet40 (via winetricks). Still playable, but doesn't satisfy requirements for Silver Rating, because of rotation/mouse issue.

Since I've installed the 1.3.28 version of Wine, the mouse cursor doesn't work fine anymore.
I can move the mouse in any direction as soon as the mouse cursor doesn't hit in the "background" the desktop borders.. ..after that i can't get the mouse move in one or more directions. This is very annoying since I have to use the keyboard to turn left or right.
Does any of you know any solution, or hint? I couldn't find a good set of words to find a solution on google. :-)
Sky: is there a way to get the sky "blue" instead of the "dark" one i have? :)
