Additional Comments

The game took a few minutes to actually stop working. There was no command-line output during this time, and nothing seemed to be loading from my drives, but if I waited, the game started working eventually. The missing video seems like it must be a relatively minor problem. I'll check the forums and bug reports for the specific errors that I saw.

HOWTO for Wine 1.2
Here's how to get the game running;
1. Install the game.
2. Install the patch.
3. Use Winetricks to install DirectX 9 with 'winetricks d3dx9'
4. Find out how much video memory you have.  lspci -v will help you find the model of your video card, then google it.
5. Run 'regedit' and add in a registry key under HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software -> Wine called Direct3D.  Then add a New String to that of VideoMemorySize.  Modify the value to however many MB your video card has.
6. Install whatever mods / maps you'd like.  These go in your $HOME/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Ubisoft/Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter/local/english (or german, spanish, etc.) or the maps go in the custom_levels folder).  As a side note, the game will only let you select
7. Run game.
Fullscreen rendering issue
Some strange glitches as shown in the current screenshot.  These are fixed by switching on and off Full screen in the video settings.  When you actually start the game, press ESC, click video, and change the Full Screen option.  Even if you saved it as windowed mode, you'll have the corruption when you first boot it up.  After you switch back and forth until it is fixed, then it will play normally.

Using windowed mode will not have this problem.
