Installing (in a clean prefix), changing sound and graphic settings, re-defining the controls, videos, cutscenes, playing the first two missions (Training/Operation Torch).
What does not
Starting the game without mohaa_disabled_extenstions-v2.reg (see comment by Adam Bolte) added to registry and without using __GL_ExtensionStringVersion=17700 in the wine command line (see script below).
What was not tested
Playing the whole game.
I wrote a short script that does the job for me: #!/bin/sh cd ~/MyWinePrefixes/.MoH/path/to/your/game.exe #Run with GL extensions disabled/nVidia card WINEPREFIX=~/MyWinePrefixes/.MoH __GL_ExtensionStringVersion=17700 wine ./MOHAA.EXE

When in game, if you are experiencing problems with the mouse, e.g. you can't turn more than 180 degrees, then open the console by pressing the ~ or ` button (which must be enabled via the advanced settings page), and typing in "seta in_mouse -1" without the quotes .
Alternatively you could make a file, mousefix.cfg and type the following in it:
seta in_mouse -1
and copy it to: C:\Program Files\EA Games\MOHAA\Main (that's the default folder, change if needed)
and when you're in the game open the console and type in: exec mousefix.cfg, and from then on it should be fixed from game startup without having to type it in each time. (Note: this hasn't been tested yet, please email me if you get problems)
Medal of honor crashes upon startup on Intel Graphics when running under Wine 1.3.
Due to Graphics Subsystem Drivers and the way it handles long extensions for OpenGL. The application fails to start.
- Open Terminal
- Enter MESA_EXTENSION_MAX_YEAR=2003 wine moh_Breakthrough.exe to run the application
- My testing shows that Medal of Honor is still incompatible with Wine 1.4 as well as Wine 1.5. You will need Wine 1.3 along with the MESA_EXTENSION parameter as I described above to run the application. Tested Multiplayer as well under Wine 1.3 - Working no problems.
