I've just finished playing through Farcry 2 using wine-1.3.24 two days ago. I had no problems with the "load game" dialog (it would show up instantaneously). To get rid of the black sky bug I had to set one of the ingame graphics options to medium (I believe it was shaders), the rest can stay at the highest possible setting. I also experienced a bit of flickering when using HDR, so I disabled that as well. The frequent crashes can be circumvented by shutting down your ethernet devices (i.e. for me: ifdown eth0) before playing. Why this works, I have no idea, but I never had a single crash when eth0 was shut down and when it wasn't it would crash all the time. The only ugly thing remaining is that the game would eventually run out of memory (after 2 - 3 hours of continuous playing), but that seems to be the game leaking memory (not wine related). Of course you have to patch your game to the newest version as this fixes lots of crashing problems that can't be solved otherwise.
