F.E.A.R Online / Gallium Nine / Wine-Staging 1.7.36

This game is both available on Steam and Aeria Games Web Sites. Its installation on Linux using Wine is quite similar to installation of Scarlet Blade.

There are a couple issues for this game. I will try to add more information in this article when I get more time

Based on my own experience I was able to install and to patch it. Below are two videos


Video 1: PVE - Players vs Environment

Video 2: PVP -Player vs Player
  • [-]To be honest I read a lot of tests about this game on the Web. This game is not really popular, sadly developped, sadly maintained. It is a P2W (Play To Win). Well I played this game. I don't really know what is the "FEAR experience". I didn't play any game from FEAR serie before

    There are two servers:
    1. USA: 1
    2. Europe: 1
  • [+]I didn't buy nothing. I played only for the fun.
  • [+]I played for a couple of hours. Players I found for matches I did were pretty cool :). Perhaps I was pretty lucky while I was playing but it was pretty fun :).
  • [+] I got nice FPS while playing
  • [-]Even if I was able to play it using Wine there are a couple of issue to take into account.
    • You can't do the tutorial due to a couple of issues. At least you can missions, play a couple of matches
    • You have to rewrite the setting.cfg before running the game by setting "Gamma" to "1,0000" to avoid black screen. I don't really know why but "Gamma" parameter is reset to 0,0000 or 0,990000 once you quit the game.
      vim $WINEPREFIX/drive_c/AeriaGames/FEAROnline/FEAR_Online/settings.cfg
      And update set gamma to 1
      Gamma" "1.000000"
    I will try to redo another video later when I get free time.
But once you are in match versus other players it was really pretty cool. It was really funny!

UPDATE 02/12/2015: This game is available on Steam since 02/12/2015

Youtube - Video

This is a pretty nice game. Unfortunately it is quite difficult to find gamers to play online. In video below I play vs I.A.

Winetricks - Prerequisites

  • Install Steam
    winetricks --no-isolate-steam
  • Install the requirements
    winetricks d3dcompiler_43 d3dx9 vcrun2008sp1 vcrun2010 mfc42

Tips to know

  • Compared to the video above set up a virtual desktop. There is a transparent windows issue for the launcher ( as shown in video 00:17 - 00:21). If you use a virtual desktop then it should fix it.
  • This game used Unigine. There is the well-known glicth for "Red Wall" using Gallium Nine. To fix it set "Effect" in option to its lowest value (video: 01:08 - 01:11)

Why GalliumNine is not included in Wine-Staging for the moment?

There are interesting links to read That should be pretty nice to see GalliumNine being pushed in Wine-Staging. In a nutshell once you read links above you may understand that it requires a lot of work :)
  • rewritte the code
The second part written below is my own opinion so could be really useless to read

I used one of my PC for Mesa/GalliumNine. This is a dedicated PC only for this project. To be honest this is really cool when you notice that you can play your favorite games using Open Source Driver and AMD Card -- I am speaking for AMD users here --. It does not mean that it works all time and it does not mean that you may have interesting FPS for all games.

For the 4 past years I tested a lot of games (Windows) using wine and my GTX 680 -- NVIDIA Card hard-moded to GRID K2 --. I used my own AMD cards for perhaps one or two months to play only a couple of games. To be more precisedI did this because I worked on Xen VGA PassThrough -- to be able to access my own AMD graphic card for my virtual machine --. I discovered GalliumNine in October, 2014.

Gallium Nine is really interesting! This is from my own point of vue. Wine developers shared another point of view. Quite understandable!
