Hi I use Chakra GNU/Linux 2012.04 x86_64, to install the game I use the wine 1.3.26 version (installed by the script) I use KDE 4.8.3

I manage to run the game changing some values in winecfg (if I don't do that I get the next error )

the changes are this

But the game run very, very slow, like in slow motion (you can see how slow run the game watching the video). Disabling kwin effects don't make any difference.

By the way, the game don't support gamepad under wine? don't recognize my xbox 360 wireless control (xboxdrv driver ) 

My equip is a AMD Phenom II X6 1055T 4gb of ram and ATI HD4670 512mb of vram with catalyst 12.2

Any idea of what I'm doing wrong?

Any help will be much apreciated, thanks in advance

I think it's a problem related to playonlinux.

I just tried the game in crossover and runs at full speed (but still does not recognize the Xbox 360 joystick)

I do not have any slowdown/crash issue with this game. I think your problem is more related to ATI/AMD hardware, crossover builds have some "hacks" to speedup game when using ATI card (problems due to very bad GNU/Linux driver).

Concerning the pad issue, wireless pads have very few chance to work...Even wired Xbox360 pad work only with some games.

Using keyboard/mouse to play game with wine is still the best way, but things goes better with time :)

Thanks for the answers.

I imagine that the ATI driver was responsible.

For the pad I "solved" with QJoyPad.

Thanks again

I mark as solved
