  • This game runs at a somewhat uncommon resolution of 640x400 - if you want the game to run fullscreen, make sure that this resolution is available in your X server configuration file (typically /etc/X11/XF86Config).
  • The resultion can be changed only IN the game (press F11). The maximum resolution is 1024x768x32, in which the game runs fluently on a fast machine (e.g. K6 3000+ 512MB RAM) using 4.4 standard settings
  • Game can very (unplayably) slow with default settings on older versions / slower machines. I had to decrease wineserver priority, and disable Pthreads. This may be related to my setup, but keep these settings in mind.
  • After making these changes, the game still slows down every few minutes or so. Waiting a few seconds brings the speed back up.
  • Network play was not tested, and may or may not work.


  • The version tested was the free downloadable version that Rockstar released. There were changes from the original, to "enable support for modern PC's and current Microsoft Windows(R) platforms." (From the readme.) The original CDROM version may or may not work.
