I added the key, and the game became a lot smoother. i would show you, but setting affinity didn't do jack, the game still stutters with the desktop recorder running. i set core 0 for the game, and core 2 for the desktop recorder (i turned off HT for this go around, so i wasn't assigning virtual cores by mistake
i even chose to save the temp file to a different harddrive instead of where the game was being ran from and it still cause stuttering. oh well.
thanks for the registry keys, i don't know much about wine other than getting things to work on it from reading winehq
i'd recommend anyone who is planning on playing games, add these registry keys if they don't exist already.

So while I'm at least glad it plays well in Wine, I am truly saddened that Carmack did not keep his promise to make a native Linux version available. However, I am betting that audio has a lot to do with it. That is an area where Direct X actually does very well with little or no real competition. Maybe one day.....
there is still hope for a linux build, Timothee Besset, has said he will continue to try to work on one (he's mainly been responsible for them in the past.).
as for the audio system, yeah directx does do that well, openal is no where near as good but that can be said about just all things sound wise in linux
its performance in linux under wine is surprisingly good imho. i only noticed two places so far with texture popping, and they were both in the dead city. it runs at the same fps in linux as it does in windows and i'm sure with a more powerful graphics card, it will either be higher or the graphics would increase.
might be better in a different distro, debian/ubuntu isn't well known for their openGL performance, as it is usually a hacked/patched openGL they use, i would seriously be interested in how it runs in like slackware,arch and fedora, i might be on a distro hopping quest for wine
