What works

The game installs fine. Starts fine. Works with punkbuster and everything.

What does not

When I start the game with the Beryl window manager, the screen has a big black frame around it and when I move the mouse cursor to the edge the screen will scroll back and forth, up and down. The same is true in-game making it impossible to run the game in Beryl. Changing the screen resolution when run from Beryl results in a black screen.

When I start the game with normal Metacity window manager, most things work fine. FPS is very good and I ran with highest resolution and high quality textures. No problem when it comes to graphics. Mouse is a problem. It will not turn 360 degrees, sometimes only about 200 degrees. I think it might be somewhat related to the black edges thing under Beryl.

Punkbuster kicked me out of a game once because "Unknown Windows API". Such issues needs to be fixed.

Workarounds

What was not tested

I only tried the game for half an hour. The only major problem I ran into was the mouse issue (and that punkbuster kicked me out, but that only happened once).
