This is exactly what I do to get the game running, starting from a fresh
Firstly - Wine version 0.9.46, with these hacks applied:
Probably the only one related is the Securom one, but I have included the others just in case.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct3D\OffscreenRenderingMode = fbo
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct3D\UseGLSL = enabled
wine vcredist_x86.exe, which you can download here.
cdto the installation directory.
There is one issue though - every time you start the game, ~/My Games/Crysis_MP_DEMO/ is created, and game will crash when starting if this exists. So delete ~/My\ Games/ before you attempt to start the game every time . Sometimes it still crashes, but just keep deleting the directory and trying again (has taken up to 10 tries for me).
