X³: Terran Conflict or short x3tc will run out of the box, but voices, music and movies will not work. In order to fix that, you need to do the following steps:
- It is recommended to do these steps separately and in this order!
- Also, repeat each step if an installation fails to finish!
- Finally, creating a wineprefix is highly recommended
1.) After you installed x3tc, get winetricks (save as) and install the following:
All of these are necessary to fix movies and music.
2.) Open winecfg and go to the libraries tab. Add "dciman32.dll" and set it to "native"
3.) Install "amov4ie.exe" manually.
Once that is done, run the following command: [regsvr32 "c:\windows\system32\amstream.dll"] (without brackets of course)
4.) download this msdmo.dll and copy it into "/windows/system32/". Overwrite if prompted.
Beware of additional dll installs/overwrites!
If you like to install additional dlls, you should be careful about the chosen package!
x3 terren conflict will run perfectly if you setup your wineprefix as mentioned in the howto, if you install additional stuff like vcrunXXXX, chances are that you install dlls which cause this game to crash or freeze.
The following dll(s) should not be changed after finishing the howto:
| msdmo.dll (14KiB) |
| msvcrt.dll (2.4KiB) |
If you however want to install an additional vcrun-version, it is highlty recommended to cut/paste the msvcrt.dll from windows/system32 into your x3tc folder beforehand.
Once you installed the additional vcrun-version, check the system32 folder for a new version of the msvcrt.dll file and cut/paste it into the game folder containing the exe file you had to install this vcrun-version for!

in game menus

how do i get the in game menus to work like my property and such
I got it working in the meantime.
I used the script that is suggested in one of the tests to prepare my prefix. Then I installed the game, and concerning the music problem, the music appeared begining with wine 1.1.42. I dont know weather it was a gentoo or a wine bug that was fixed but its working like a dream now. Even better than on windows (honestly!)
you need to be careful, that ALL steps are successfully completed. Otherwise the script will end with return value "true", though it was not complete.
I'll give this further testing and see if it can get gold status
