Good, at least it was playable.
That may be the best its going to get.
Wine still has a lot of work to do, but games keep getting better.

Look for video.con in your /home/username/Battlefield2/profiles/default

Open it with Gedit and change:
Code:
renderer.drawfps 0
to
Code:
renderer.drawfps 1

I don't have that option in my video.con. i'm starting to think dual boot might be my best option for that game for now. I was screwing around with it for a few hours last night. I was changing settings, changing wine versions, but no go. Still the spots, and everything on low. I want to say thank you, for helping me. I think wine just isn't ready enough for me yet (for bf2 anyways).

No problem. I do the same thing with my LAN parties.
My computer is dual boot for certain games.

Feel free to post questions about any other games you want to try.

BF2 seems to be one of those stubborn games that we can't get to run perfectly, but there are still a bunch of games that do run.

Did you ever try Bad Company 2 yet?

I don't have it so I have not been able to test it.
I was reading on WineHQ and someone did get it to run pretty good with only a few gliches: Bad Company 2

One person suggest manually setting BC2 to use DirectX 9 instead of DirectX 10

Maybe its just the Frostbite engine?
Kinda sad because they spent time developing a BF2 linux server and it runs GREAT! So why not use that department to also modify BF2 to work natively in Linux with OpenGL?

I completely agree. I have and tried bfbc2. I tried it a few times and all I can say is it's ok. Bf2 was and still is by far my favorite. I didn't really check out any of the native games yet, but i'm sure I will very soon.

Steam has over 300 native linux games ready to download and play.
Otherwise, there are a few sites dedicated to native Linux games
