Installation and running the game (tests initial gameplay only)
What does not
Highest video settings in my NVidia 9600 GT is useless.
What was not tested
To buy/unlock the game online. The full game.
Howto: 1) Install Switchball, including: - tick off the tray icon during Physx install - ignore registration request 2) replace/add following dlls into system32: shdocvw.dll shlwapi.dll urlmon.dll mshtml.dll jscript.dll MSLS31.DLL 3) do the dll overrides with winecfg The game runs both in virtual desktop and full screen. I had to reduce video effects from highest to high which makes it playable but with some obstructing shadow. Sadly, mouse pointer is unavailable, but keyboard seems to work well. In game sound had some noise (not a pulse-audio issue since it was not running).
