Installation via emulated Steam is flawlessly.
What does not
Playing does not work. swkotor.exe Process is started, nothing appears on the screen. Different configurations tested: Wine in desktop mode, without desktop mode, disabled intro videos, started own X-Server, detached game from Steam with NoCD Patch. Game does not start with this wine version.
Downgraded to wine version 1.4.1 ( from Archlinux AUR, wine-stable) and game runs without problems from Steam including intro scenes.
Glitchy sound, ALSA underruns
by Freso on Monday December 31st 2012, 23:11
I'm getting choppy/glitchy/skipping/cracking sounds running this in 1.5.20. I'm getting the error/notice "ALSA lib pcm.c:7339:(snd_pcm_recover) underrun occurred" in the terminal output, but searching for this error has so far not resulted in a solution, but the search results strongly suggest that it is indeed linked to the badly behaving sounds.
I have PulseAudio running and is experimenting with suspending it, not running it, etc., but so far no go. Any and all hints and suggestions would be appreciated.
In the title screen and in game, the game was only in grey, apparently lacking textures. I read that it was a problem due to the lack of S3TC support, and that it was needed to disable it, or install a package that include it.
Disabling using driconf breaks other games, so I reverted that change.
The package pointed out was one from the deb-multimedia repository but there is also a free implementation on Debian official repository, the package libtxc-dxtn-s2tc0.
As my wine is from i386 (multiarch), I installed it with:
sudo aptitude install libtxc-dxtn-s2tc0:i386
Textures Don't Show

On a Toshiba Satellite L300 with Ubuntu 10.04, whenever I open swkotor, I get a menu which is all white except for a black Malak and black fog. The text of the menu appears in blue and the mouse is functional but the cursor is simply a white box.
I've verified the cache, disabled movies and disabled hardware mouse.
freeze leaving taris
by santiago on Tuesday August 17th 2010, 22:48
My game is freezing, just when I'm getting to the hangar to leave taris, there is a dialog and the game will not respond anymore. The animation is still working since I can see the characters moving a little bit. but the dialog will not advance or allow me to skip.
Anyone knows how to resolve this?
im using 1.3.0 with an integrated intel card from an i3 in a 64bits ubuntu 10.04
