Additional Comments

Some benchmarking (1600x1200; Best Quality): * 306 FPS ~ Wine, nVidia v180.22; * 310 FPS ~ Wine & WINEDEBUGS=-all, nVidia v180.22; * 327 FPS ~ Win XP SP2, nVidia v178.24; There are problems with mouse - you cannot do 360Ëš turnaround, but just cca 80Ëš. Also in menu when moving mouse down&right the mouse become very slow from some point... Next problem is that one click inside menu is doubled - for example you cannot change something from ON to OFF. Thanks to doubleclick, OFF choice is skipped... To turn on Punkbuster can be problematic. It asks you for YES/NO. NO works, but if you choose YES it forever asks you again YES/NO.

HowTo / Notes

If mod's are not working on Wine they cannot be taken from the Games rating. Retail the game works fine.
