Managed to get the ut3 demo working in wine.
wine-doors (installed packages)
ut3demoxp642k3 (exe patch) //available at filefront (link to file at epic is broken!)
-[HKCU\Software\Wine\Direct3D] OffscreenRenderingMode = fbo //absolutely necessary
[HKCU\Software\Wine\DirectInput] MouseWarpOverride = force //didn't seem to make a difference, but i will continue to play with it some more.
So yeah, instant action works! was able to get between 20-60 fps actually fairly playable, even fragged a couple average bots with the nerfed mouse movement (not able to turn around etc..)
What does not
1. With compiz fusion enabled, can't get the mouse to bottom of screen1, so not able to apply settings etc.
2. compiz fusion off, can now navigate menus! But cannot change resolution or any video settings without crashing. (click apply=crash) stuck at 640x480 :(
3. mouse works but with EXTREAMLY limited movement, can probably only move like 2 inches up,down,left,right (turning mouse sensitivity way up allowed me to turn around) i dunno hard to explain lol... mx518!
What was not tested
online play was not tested... not much point if i can't aim for s#*t!
lg monitor 1680x1050 core 2 duo E8400 1333fsb 3.0ghz sli 9800gtx's 700Mhz gpu clock nvidia driver version: 173.14.12 mx518 mouse 2gigs ram would really like to get the demo working.. to hold me off until ut3 linux client is available!

First of all, thank you for spending some time to help Wine to get better,
These are recommendations to make tests result more uniform and targeted to include common information that will be useful to other users of Wine.
First of all install the .NET Framework 2 and 3 via winetricks, to know more, click here.
To install .NET Framework type this commands on your console:
env WINEPREFIX="(your-prefix)" ./winetricks dotnet20 dotnet30
Now install your game like other normal software installed on wine. Then install the Unreal Tournament 3 Patch v2.1, download here and install into your prefix.
Then just run the game and everything should work fine.
After installing, create a file called vcrun.reg and put the following content:
Then run the follow command:
You can also install Visual C runtime libraries using winetricks, by typing:
To also make sure that everything will work fine, install the tahoma.ttf, arial.ttf, verdana.ttf and lucida.ttf font's on your prefix. You can do-it manually or using winetricks with the follow command:
This bug normally happens because of the Visual C Runtime, see the Tips section for more information.
This happens in alot of games if you dont set the size of RAM that you VideoCard has, use this registry key to set:
Change the 768 to the real ammount of RAM in MB that your VideoCard has.
Note: These problems don't affect the newest versions of wine, it's only here for precaution, if you have any of these bug's maybe you should upgrade your wine version.
This happens because the Mouse Input of wine is not so good until now, you can solve adding this patch to registry:
The Mouse will not work into the menu, you gonna have to use the keyboard to walk into the Unreal menus.
Mouse is showing in the screen while playing (Only steam version).
This bug only happens with the Steam version, all the games into steam has this problem with old versions of wine/steam.
See more at bug #27779.
Mouse randomly jumps around menu or in game.
This is caused by implementation of mouse input in old versions of wine, to solve-it, you need to run the game in Windowed mode or into a Virtual Desktop.
UT3 Logo hangs indefinitely using 100% of cpu.
You can solve this problem by using the options -nomoviestartup and -onethread in the game executable. Newest version of wine don't have this bug.
