HowTo / Notes

Making mouse work better
Original Idea by Pac Shady, tested on 1.1.7
    • Set the mouse smoothness to maximum
    • Turn on virtual desktop
    • Run wine with WINEDEBUG=-all

    Additionally you can try:

    • Install dx9 (not necessary at the moment, but still you can try)
    • Set maximum possible for you screen resolution or set 640x480. Depends on perfomance.
    That makes the mouse movement work in all directions quite good, but mouselook speed on X axis is different from Y axis. On wide and opened areas which really consume performance, this bug gives the biggest effect.
    Internet Multiplayer
    Since Sierra shut down master-servers, you will be unable to get internet multiplayer working (connect to any internet server) without applying a community .rez-file patch. Patch is still in heavy development (available on LithFAQ), so you should not reply about failures with online gameplay.
