HowTo: Far Cry 2
The installation went smooth. I just loaded up Far Cry 2 within the explorer "wine explorer /desktop=..." (wine explorer /desktop=Far_Cry_2,1440x900 setup.exe) and I did not install PunkBuster or Desktop Shortcut. The game may work with PunkBuster and Desktop shortcut, but I haven't tested that and I wanted to make sure the installation and the basics of the game worked first.
Then I loaded up the game, (wine explorer /desktop=Far_Cry_2,1440x900 /home/USR/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Ubisoft/Far\ Cry\ 2/bin/FarCry2.exe) and I got a few errors about missing dlls. And those are: d3dx9_38, gdiplus, iphlpapi, psapim, and xinput1_3. So I applied them to them to the bin folder and I also applied a No-CD Patch because of SecuROM. But After that, I loaded up Far Cry 2 again and it worked.
Untick PunkBuster and Desktop Shortcut
cd /media/cdrom0/ && wine explorer /desktop=DEFAULT,1440x900 setup.exe
use default installation path "Program Files/Ubisoft/Far Cry 2/"
After installation, use the dll files I uploaded within this thread "FarCry2.HOWTO.TheDLLp1.tar.gz" & "FarCry2.HOWTO.TheDLLp2.tar.gz".
and extracted them to the bin folder:
Extract the dll file form "d3dx9_38.zip?0VEgWFWDkS" to the "TheDlls" folder
tar xvf FarCry2.HOWTO.TheDLLsp1.tar.gz && tar xvf FarCry2.HOWTO.TheDLLsp2.tar.gz
Load the Game:
cd TheDLLs && mv * /home/USR/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files\Ubisoft/Far\ Cry\ 2/bin\
cd /home/USR/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Ubisoft/Far\ Cry\ 2/bin && wine explorer /desktop=Far_Cry_2,1440x900 FarCry2.exe
Within the Regedit:
Make sure you are loading FarCry2.exe not the FC2Launcher, because the launcher isn't working at the moment.
- Video Drivers are too old
I get this error "Your Video Drivers are too old..." when loading FarCry2.exe. I hit OK and it loads the game. I am unsure on how to fix this yet.
PS: I will continue to update this thread to fix any issues and slowness with the Game.
