Being on a roll with Fallout 1 and 2 both being playable, I went ahead and booted up Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel with high hopes…
RUNNING THE GAME:
Launching the game from Steam brought up the Microsoft Direct X installer… after a 2-3 minute wait the GameSpy installer launched… I installed GameSpy and that all went ok. Then the screen went black… and stayed black for some time. I waited… and with a click of the mouse Fallout Tactics was running!
After the intro movies were done playing I started a new game. Once I had my team together it was out into the wasteland to rescue some villagers…
Graphics are much better than in Fallout 1 and 2 and there was no noticeable lag as before… I did experience a little artifacting with the UI – though nothing major. Again, probably the 2D ATI drivers…
When exiting the game from the main game screen Linux freezes and becomes unresponsive. A hard reboot is required…
I haven’t tested GameSpy or multiplayer yet, and will update as soon as I get a chance.

If you have anything to add to this game test, please feel free to comment. Do post your Wine Version, Linux Flavour and graphics card drivers = NVIDIA or ATI! Help each other out and be nice to one another :)
