Selected Test Results

What works

- Install

- Run the game (sound render config)

- Mod installation and running small battles in open space

- Fire, Smoke effects, rain

- Most addons

- Internet connection to gamespy server

What does not

- Game crashes during medium-to-intensive renderring

( Mostly driving planes, helis, tanks and during abve 10 men firefights )

- Closed spaces and building cause also more crashes.

And always regarding textures ( cf : linked bug report 8887 )

All my crashes are related to the callback func of "D3DCB_DefaultDestroySurface"

- DrawTexture problems may be due to my small config, I linked to bug 8887 anyway.

- Overriding dlls with windows directx9 gave nothing.

- Tweaking all regedit Direct3D features gave nothing.

- Tweaking game config to minimize texture display (down to 16 megs !) gave nothing.

Workarounds

What was not tested

- Lan play
- Upgrading to kernel 2.6.18-6.
- switching to wine 1.1.1 :)

Additional Comments

Personal note : I rated Bronze because the "normal use" for OfP consists in taking part in large firefights and driving vehicles ... My 2cents : The best tactical combat simulation engine ever made!

HowTo / Notes

INSTALLATION HOWTO

Install graphic card drivers, with native OpenGL. Do not enable TwinView, or dual screen.

On 64-bit systems, the 32-bit graphic driver libs need to be installed too, other wise the game wont start, complaining about missing DirectX.

Copy all files from a windows installation, as they are, to the wine drive.
(Contents of C:\Program Files\Codemasters\OperationFlashpoint)

Save your ID from a windows registry in a .reg file, with these two keys:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Codemasters\Operation Flashpoint]
"MAIN"="C:\\Program Files\\Codemasters\\OperationFlashpoint"
"KEY"=hex:aa,ab,ac,ad,ae,af,ba,bc,bd,be,bf,ca,cb,cd,ce

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Codemasters\Operation Flashpoint]
"Player Name"="Your Name"

Apply these registry settings in your Wine instance. Verify them, as you may need to set these manually within the regedit of wine.

Start the game with "wine FLASHPOINTBETA.EXE -nosplash [-mod=@YourMod] .."

Once the game started, start a wine task manager with: "wine taskmgr" and set the CPU affinity for the flashpoint process to a single CPU. Other wise there will be massive lag in multiplayer after a few minutes.
