Additional Comments

Performance with the new beta NVIDIA (169.04) drivers is greatly improved (even on a 6600GT), it's finally playable now. This might be because of the new wine version also, but i still find disabling GLSL a better choice, because of the graphics. Enabled, there is no sky, also the whole picture is very dark. Disabled, it is as it's supposed to be.

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)
