    Additional Comments

    Without the following registry-hack the game is badly slow: [Software\\Wine\\Direct3D] "OffscreenRenderingMode"="fbo" The updater wants to be root to ping the download-server, but running as root does not help either.

    HowTo / Notes

    •  Use of dll overrides "devenum.dll" and "dxdiagn.dll" may be necessary for the game to run.
    •  Requires using winetricks to install directx9 and vcrun2005.
    •  The following registry key changes are recommended (Use the command "wine regedit" and then add them as strings to the appropriate directory):

    OffscreenRenderingMode = fbo
    UseGLSL = enabled
    VideoMemorySize = 256

    You may also put in whatever amount of memory your video card uses instead of 256.

    • To get the autoupdater to run, right click anywhere on the autoupdate window (except the status text part), and then click "dedicated internet connection". It should now work.
    • If you are unable to change resolution while using fullscreen mode, emulating a virtual desktop may be useful for getting the game to allow other resolutions.
