What works

Installation and game itself works, meeting following conditions:

You have to set no audio and "Emulate virtual desktop" in Wine settings, and 640x480 resolution in game settings. Otherwise, the game would not run.

Besides that, works perfectly, you can set graphics settings from Low to High. I even tested multiplayer mode and it works fine.

What does not

Installation hangs at the end.  


Audio does not work, as the game hangs when is activated in wine settings. The game also hangs when using resolutions higher than 640x480. Also it's not possible to play in fullscreen, since 640x480 is not available when fullscreen is selected in game settings.


Conversation dialog in multiplayer (F10 key) seems not to work properly, however, you can circumvent this by using the chat function included in PES Launcher software, wich is widely adopted in online community. There is a very little slowdown, but the game is perfectly playable.

Additional Comments

Same exact behavior has been reported with the following games: - Pro Evolution Soccer 4 - Pro Evolution Soccer 5 - Pro Evolution Soccer 6 - Winning Eleven 9 Winning Eleven 8 is the american version of Pro Evolution Soccer 4. Same goes with WE9/PES5 and PES2007/PES6. They all run with the same "engine" (as they are all ports from PS2), and have the same trouble in Wine. I STRONGLY believe that once one of these games runs well, the others will do it at the same time. Test system: Athlon X2 6000+, 2 Gb RAM, GeForce 8800 GS. Tested with a mod called AOL League 2010 ( Multiplayer mode tested with the aid of PES Launcher.
