Anyone has tried this? May I ask if it is working and how good? Thank you in advance.

Looks like someone has :)

It also says the punkBuster isn't a problem (right now). I wonder what the FPS is.

Wow, thanks for the great answer. I have had problems with PunkBuster under Linux in the past. I will check it out.

Seems like a great guide. If anyone gets it running I'd interested to know the FPS as well and maybe the FPS you get in Windows.

I think you could get the FPS around 28-30 with a very good machine and with Cedega. Under Windows there is no problem at all.

Before cod4, BF2 was my only fps that i played online, i can't complain with the 32 vs 32 players in a single server. The only gripe is the hard learning curve on Jets and Copters.

I would never play any game under linux unless somebody managed to get the same fps (same settings of course) and no screen taring, as windows/os x.

OK, so what's holding you back? A lighter OS = better fps. No problem.

No it doesn't, especially with linux vs Win 7.

The emulator hijacks windows code then reinterpret it, and converts DX to OpenGl. Obviously this is far less than ideal especially with closed development of hardware which Linux developers cannot use.
