What works

game launches fine, user can start playing new game or load. Game set to use opengl as rendering engine (need to modify the .ini file in the program directory).

What does not

  1. No movies and startup splash, but this is the same behavior if I set to use opengl rendering on Windows XP --- splash and movies are only available using Direct3D.
  2. Color seriously distorted. Some parts look like negative film. Not possible to tolerate this color distortion and keep playing.
  3. No sound at all. However I could not figure out a way to get sound pass test in winecfg anyway.

Workarounds

What was not tested

Test against installed game on the hard disk, Installer not tested. But the game can run perfectly (perfect: same as on Windows. However on Windows many things ain't work neither) without installer on wine 1.0 (Ubuntu 9.10), thus I think there that the buggy behavior cannot be due to without install process.

Hardware tested

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO

To exit from intro press 'ESC' and DO NOT touch mouse, because your keyboard will not work in game for current session.

(This may help you if your keyboard doesn't work in the current session, but it should be fixed in the patch to 1.174 )

HOWTO

When you install your game make sure you disable Vertex shaders or you will have you AI's and yourself invisible.

in winecfg go to Graphics and go to Vertex shaders select "none"

You can enable widescreen with the nemesis2000 fix ( www.pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Hitman_3:_Contracts ). Additionally you must add the following library override for the game executable (HitmanContracts.exe) with wineconfig:

No sound solution

You only have to type

winetricks dsound
