- Uncheck Windowed Mode for fullscreen

- Adjust volumes
Click Enter Game
Press Esc in-game
Click Video Options
Use presets on the left
Adjust settings manually
Rule of Thumb:
High settings = More detail, lower frame rates
Low settings = Less detail, higher frame rates
The Video Options has a great Frame Counter.
As you increase the settings watch the frame rate.
Anything below 20 will stutter a lot.
I originally tested Age of Wushu with Wine 1.6.2 and newer version, but kept getting a pop-up error "Speed Up" and it was very annoying. Luckily I found Wine 1.5.19 runs perfectly!
Also, the game refuses to do high resolutions unless you set the virtual desktop first. So I set mine for 1680x1050 and it played fullscreen just fine. What a beautiful game! I was able to crank the depth of view really high on my GeForce 550 Ti and see mountains and buildings really far away.
