What works

Mostly everything works provided you follow a few extra steps that I have outlined below.

What does not

The game crashes when loading a mission using 688(I) class submarine while sound is enabled.


What was not tested

There are a few vehicles I did not test at all: The FFG, the Helo, and the P-3.

I didn't test the Kilo or the Seawolf extensively, but they appear to work properly.

Additional Comments

There are a few adjustments that must be made before the game can be run properly. First, open Wine Config and go to the Graphics tab. Select "Emulate a virtual desktop" and de-select "Allow Pixel Shader." Second, the game's sound files must be configured to play properly. Fetch the following program. Locate Dangerous Waters\Audio\Sfx\agg.sfx and use the above program to extract the .wav files from it. Remove or rename sfx.agg and then create a new directory named "sfx.agg+" and place the .wav files in it. Next we must do something similar to the vehicle specific sound files. Locate Dangerous Waters\Interfaces\AkulaII\sfx.agg. (In this case I am only modifying the sfx.agg for the Akula. If you want to drive one of the other platforms just use this same method on it.) Extract the .wavs from the vehicle specific sfx.agg and remove or rename the sfx.agg when done. This time, instead of creating a new directory for them, we will leave them in the current directory (Sub Command\Interfaces\AkulaII) and add a new prefix to their names. All the .wav files must be renamed with the prefix "sfx.agg+". Use a batch renamer for this. After these modifications are made the game will run with all sounds.
