HowTo / Notes

Workaround for a crash

If you notice the crash during game start, it could be caused by issue in AMD/Mesa drivers.

To workaround it, run the game with following environment variables set:

 NVidia: __GL_ExtensionStringVersion=17700 wine WolfSP.exe
 Intel/AMD: MESA_EXTENSION_MAX_YEAR=2005 wine WolfSP.exe
