What works

* Installation

* Patch to 1.60

* Single player mostly

* New: Mouse in menu with Vitaliy Margolens workaround in recent GIT

* New: White snow textures are now drawn correctly in the map Peaks at least

* New: When completing a mission the game is not crashing and the mission planning menu is working

What does not

* Intro movies still aren't skippable

* First time entering mission planning menu it's still garbage, to really plan a mission I blindly start the mission and go back to planning as it works that way

* Mouse in the menu is not working without the workaround

* Some glitches in graphics, might be my drivers

Additional Comments

As I said before, it's getting better every release. I was using wine-1.1.2-628-g5d900bb to be exact. FYI: I have the UK version

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO

In recent enough Wine (>=1.1.3) Vitaliy Margolen has imported the mouse warp workaround. To use it add this registry key:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\AppDefaults\RavenShield.exe\DirectInput]

MouseWarpOverride = force

Note: if your mouse sensitivity is high enough the cursor might jump out of the game window if you move your mouse fast, you could prevent this by using slower speed in X and higher sensitivity in game but you'll lose some accuracy

Intro movies cannot be skipped. Only way to do it is to remove the intro movies permanently or to replace them with empty files (might produce better results). The correspondig files are Videos/Logos.bik and Videos/int/RS_Intro.bik. If you happen to have crashing problems with the intro videos, this also gets you into the menu.

Multiplayer works flawlessly.

Known problems:

  • Intro movies are not skippable or might crash the game (workaround exists)
  • Mission planning menu may be garbage. You might be able to start the mission by blindly clicking at the lower right corner with the default plan. Some users report they do not have this issue or it works most of the time.
  • Some artifacts of the player models might appear in your hud, particulary at bottom left, not affecting the gameplay

Fixed problems:

  • Some snow textures are drawn black or can be seen trough (fixed in >= 1.1.3)
  • Mouse can't be used in the menu (workaround in >= 1.1.3)
  • When completing a mission Raven Shield crashes (fixed in >= 1.1.3)
  • Mission planning menu is garbage after finishing a mission (partially fixed in >= 1.1.3)

Everything above was tested with Wine 1.1.3.

Warning about Punkbuster

Punkbuster might or might not work. You will be kicked out of Punkbuster enabled servers without patching and can be marked as a cheater, so be careful!

 See bug 9685 for more details and patches.


Framerate stutter

If the framerate is not smooth, try both of these:

  1. wine reg add 'HKCU\Software\Wine\Direct3D' /v UseGLSL /d disabled
  2. In system/RavenShield.ini, set:
ReduceMouseLag=False
UseHardwareTL=False
MaxPixelShaderVersion=1
