make sure that you have your video memory size registry key for wine so that it knows how much video memory it has to use. I have had all kinds of problems with games recognizing my video card as being up to par until i set that key.
i play on a laptop:
nvidia quattro 880M 1G
1920x1080 max settings no graphic lag with reg key.
That did it. After setting HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct3D\VideoMemorySize to the string value "2048", I have no longer have any problems with "High" shadow quality at 1920x1080 full screen.
I found the wine registry, but I don't have a DIrect3D entry at all in the place indicated above. D3 does run, but I'd like to improve fps as much as possible. Any idea why Direct3D entry would be missing?
