This is tested with the german version of Republic Commando. Could not find a version tag but there is afaik no 1.1 anyway so this should be 1.0. - Multiplayer Online - Singleplayer (played this several times completely with older wine installations) - Installation (had to mount cd 2 manually since ubuntu left a .hal-mtab-lock in /media on eject that avoided auto-detection and -mount but that's distro specific.) - Copy Protection (CD-Rom was successfully auto detected by wine. If this is not the case make sure that you set your CD-Rom as Type "cdrom" in winecfg and not to "auto".). There is no crack needed! - Videos (even in main menu. Videos are however upside down and do not auto-repeat but stop at EOF in main menu) [*] - Ammo counter on weapons [*] Fiddled with 3D Settings. Everything worked just perfect even on maximum settings. NSC shadows flicker a little bit but I remember this from Windows as well (probably NVIDIA, some magic switch in System.ini, where much more than the settings offered in game can be set, might do the trick). [*] That has been a problem with wine for years so I mentioned this explicit
What does not
What was not tested
Multiplayer LAN but I expect it's the same as playing online.
Minor issues occurred: - Videos do work now (main menu is no longer white) but videos are upside down. - Video in main menu does not auto-repeat as it is supposed to and stops at EOF. - Using Alt+F4 brings me to my desktop perfectly. Exiting with game button Quit brings me back to desktop with resolution set in game (1600x1024) and not the native 1680x1050 (xrandr -s 0 fixes that quickly though) I'm using. - Sound lagged sometimes when a lot of action occurred. Got rid of this setting UseDirectHW to 'y' for Alsa Driver as described on Wine Useful Registry Keys for my EMU10k1 driven SB Live. Since this is very driver depending I can not blame wine for this. - After some minutes of playing I fiddled a little bit with Direct3D Settings and set Multisampling 'enabled', DirectDrawRenderer 'opengl' and VideoMemorySize '1280' for my NVIDIA GeForce GTX 470 (Driver Version 260.19.06). That's not exactly necessary but I've made good experiences with those settings. Can't pinpoint any positive (or negative) effects for this however. No extras were installed (e.g. direct3d with winetricks) and I installed this in a clean wine bottle using WINEPREFIX. Works out of the box and absolutely smooth so I rate this Platinum! Great job wine!
