Additional Comments

Have to skip in-game movies (real ones) by pressing ESC, to allow the game to load (for example the intro). Since they're just in an mpg format, you can watch them with any player separately.

HowTo / Notes

dll overide

game require d3dx9_36.dll from native environment. can be automatically installed via winetricks:

winetricks d3dx9

HOWTO avoid SLowdown
if your game says:
"fixme:d3d_surface:fb_copy_to_texture_direct Doing a pixel by pixel copy from the framebuffer to a texture, expect major performance issues".
then you will need add this to wine registry:
REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct3D]
"OffscreenRenderingMode"="fbo"
"UseGLSL"="enabled"
"VertexShaderMode"="hardware"
"PixelShaderMode"="enabled"
"DirectDrawRenderer"="opengl"
Graphical corruption \ hunging up

if you experience some graphical corruption or your game hangs up in particular places, try to set

OffscreenRenderingMode

to fbo, pbuffer or backbuffer in

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct3D]

registry branch with

regedit

more details

please, check game with all the different options, post screenshots, write test data and bug reports

HOWTO Play with Videos

while bug in quartz don't let us play games with our quartz.dll, it is possible, however, to use quartz.dll from game's,well... native environment. then:

1) set loading order of that dll to "native, buit-in" via

winecfg

 2) install ffdshow via winetricks:

winetricks ffdshow

3) when game starts and trying to show first video, window may pop-up and ask if you want to use ffdshow:

  • answer "yes, always" and you will get videos with sound and no more annoying windows
  • answer "no" and, probably, there will be no sound in videos
  •  

game may hang-up unexpectedly. please, test it with ffdshow, wmp, both and without (maybe with k-lite codec pack too)
