Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz
4gb 800MHz DDR2 4-4-4-12
Wine Version: 0.9.47
Video: nVidia 8800 GTX
nVidia Driver Version Linux: 100.14.19
nVidia Driver Version XP: 162.18

Windows XP SP2 32-Bit Score: 16901
Ubuntu 7.10 64-Bit Score: 15996

Both performance tests were done with equal graphics settings at

On that note, I noticed that ReplaceFileW still isn't implemented as
it's not possible to safe a profile under Supreme Commander. Wasn't

to implement that function until I saw someone else had already
submitted a patch with an implementation. What happened with that?
