Oh sorry, i have forgotten to mention anything. ^^
So, I have the disk of Bioshock with the last update of directx of June 2007. I remember it was the 1.1 version of Bioshock, but i cannot be sure.
For wine, i have the 1.1.29 version.
For PlayOnLinux, i have the 3.6 version.
The installation has started, one thing has failed : the auto update manager (he cannot connect to the server).
Then, when i wanted to update the game myself, there were no Bioshock.exe file (it should have been into the folder of bioshock/Builds/Release/ ). So, the game cannot start.
When writing this message, i was trying to install bioshock via PlayOnLinux and then complete the missing Bioshock.exe from the wine-installed game. But this time, the installation and the auto update succeded. I can even start Bioshock without any no-cd.
However, when starting the game via PlayOnLinux, nothing did happen.
I have started the PlayOnLinux executable Bioshock.exe myself with the mouse's click (/home/$USER/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/Bioshock/drive_c/Program Files/2K Games/Bioshock/Builds/Release/Bioshock.exe), not via PlayOnLinux. The game has started, he has recognized my saves, but when i choose to have a 1440*900 screen resolution instead of the basic resolution (1024*768 ?) (with the basic resolution i have the Gnome task bars), the effect was like a kill -9 -1 command. Usually the wine-installed version don't do that.
I have tried another time, i can see the game works, the mouse can be ok, the graphic changes do not do a kill -9 -1 anymore. So, the game looks like to work.
Thank you for the patch. :D
Is is normal that PlayOnLinux cannot start the game himself ?
