> Halo :

> Version of Halo being used : Halo Custom Edition 1.07
> Live for Speed :
> I've noticed that performance for this game was worse than Windows XP. I
> was able in Windows XP to race with multiple cars at 60FPS. Now in Linux,
> at the same track, and the same amount of cars, I can't do more than
> 30FPS, which isn't good enough for me as I'm very sensitive to low
> framerate. Are there any tweaks that are known to increase performance in
> DirectX8 games ? Also, trying to register the game gives the message :
> "Cannot find Windows Product ID". Everything else works fine though.
> Version of Live for Speed : Live for Speed S2Z
> Specifications :
> Wine 1.1.11
> Ubuntu Linux 8.10 Intrepid Ibex
> Dell XPS m1530
> Intel Core 2 Duo T7500 2.2 GHz, 4MB Cache
> nVidia GeForce 8600m GT 256MB DDR3
> 3GB RAM DDR667
About the registering, open wine configuration, add the patch or crack youre
using to register Live For Speed, in application settings to use windows
version windows 98. The patch doesnt read Product id`s from old windows
Worked for me, hope it works for you. :)
Have a nice day.
