Additional Comments

Don't go too far a way from PC when you run setup of Quake3 arena demo. At the end it opens a lot of "Wine File Explorer", so in short time your desktop is flooded by these windows. Installation needs to be canceled and you will receive message "Installation unsuccessful". Anyway game is already in place and you can run Q3A demo... There are problems with mouse - you cannot do 360Ëš turnaround, but just cca 80Ëš. Also in menu when moving mouse down&right the mouse become very slow from some point.

HowTo / Notes

If mod's are not working on Wine they cannot be taken from the Games rating. Retail the game works fine.
