  • Models might become purple if you set the Graphical Quality slider to anything higher than the lowest. If this happens, you do need to enable Pixel Shaders.
  • You might have O/S Exceptions for 3-5mins when game is run initially. Be sure to have the game running with Win98 settings. Otherwise you will get kicked from PunkBuster. The O/S Exceptions will most likly go away like they did for me.
  • When game is run in full screen for me and I join a server I noticed that the text was all blocks. The rest of the game was functional but the text was all blocks. I was able to get rid of that by going to the game menu by pressing escape then pressing it again to go back ingame. I havent seen this error anymore since I run the game in 800x600 screen settings.

Best game settings for me and tips

  • I run game in a window of 800x600. My X.Org server runs in 1280x1024. Game was installed with Cedega 5.2.9, with GDDB used. Only changes I set were the Pixel Shaders to 1.4, 512mb Video RAM, AGP Vertex Data to 128mb. Audio is OSS. When I used alsa and the map changed in game the sound muted.
  • My systems a HP Pavilion a450y, 2.8ghz Pentium 4 Hyper Threaded (HT) processor. The distro I use is Gentoo Linux 2006.1 kernel 2.6.18-gentoo-r6. I have a crappy onboard Intel Corporation 82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 02).
  • As always, be sure to check the current Release Notes for info and hints from the Cedega developers on getting get this game working optimally
