What works

everything at high frame-rate, i'm very happy with this :D

considering my old set-up..

What does not


-had to use 'wine eject -a' when asked to insert next CD during install process, also had to add the drive to my winecfg, see below.

-had to add my CDROM drive under 'Drives' tab in 'winecfg';


add D: Drive,

under Advanced button;



-Some textures when using 'Direct3D HW T&L' flicker..
i.e. roads and guns on AI

-Desktop cursor is visible in top left corner of screen after the cursor has been locked to the game one


-'Direct3D HW T&L' is much much faster then 'Direct3D', although does contain the above bugs.

-'Glide' was not tested due to 'glide3x.dll' error.

-Mods work perfectly, no crashes, no slow down

-Starting with a very simple script, works well;

 ['' file]


cd ~/games/OFP
export WINEPREFIX=~/games/OFP/.wine


'FLASHPOINTRESISTANCE.EXE' works well without needing the CD mounted or in CDROM drive. Using 'FlashpointPreferences.exe' instead works too, good for tweaking and CPU benchmarks.


What was not tested

-completed 100% all CWC & RES
-multiplayer only tested for a very short period

HowTo / Notes


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"

[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.
