The test results you have selected are very old and may not represent the current state of Wine.
Selected Test Results (selected in 'Test Results' table below)
- most of the game
- game save / load
What does not
- game sometimes crashes for no reason - when the CPU is overloaded (it was not like that in previous wine version)
- the sound stutters (err:dsound:DSOUND_MixOne underrun on sound buffer 0x22472b0)
- characters' speech
If you want to start Gothic with music enabled, you have to use the following native dlls: dmband.dll,
The easiest way is to use winetricks:
$ wget http://winetricks.org/winetricks
$ sh winetricks directmusic
sets more DLL overrides than necessary. In my case I had to remove the
override for 'dsound' (winecfg -> Libraries) or the
game would crash at the main menu: "C: failed to initialize sound, MSS
reported: Broken waveOut driver – ’buffer done’ flag never set".
Otherwise if you don't want to use native dlls, you have to
disable music by setting 'musicEnabled=0' in
Using open source graphics drivers
It is possible to run Gothic using the open source graphics stack, at least with Intel and Radeon cards. The "i965" (Intel GMA X3100) and "r300" (ATi Radeon 9500 - X1950) drivers are reported to work, others will probably work as well, so please test it and leave a comment below.
What you need is S3 Texture Compression (S3TC), a technology covered by a patent which makes things complicated.
You can enable S3TC support using the GUI tool 'driconf' or by adding an entry to your ~/.drirc file. DriConf should be easier..
There are issues, for example, the floor might be invisible. Also the menu / all fonts might be invisible when you start the game and suddenly appear after some minutes of playing. Leave a comment :)

Access Violation - Application Error

Hi everyone and thank you for your help!
I'm getting this error when loading the main window (the one with the game logo and the image with some characters on a landscape background):
Suddenly can't run Gothic
by Lukas Matousek on Wednesday January 23rd 2013, 15:51
Hi, I was playing this game on Gentoo (64bit) on Wine 1.5.19 without any problem. I have upgraded wine to 1.5.21 (and Intel drivers and some other packages) and I can't run it now. I haven't changed anything I know off.
When I run Gothic from command line, I get some fixme's and this one error.
err:d3d:device_clear_render_targets >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> GL_INVALID_ENUM (0x500) from glClear @ /var/tmp/portage/app-emulation/wine-1.5.21/work/wine-1.5.21/dlls/wined3d/device.c / 755
More details - wine starts its emulated desktop (same as my native resolution), shows Gothic logo and then goes black and that's the end. I have to alt-tab outside and kill process manually.

When I first installed I had the title bar issue (where the Gothic windows titlebar appears as if it were windowed - even though it's full screen) For me, changing to a higher resolution (I only tried with 1280x1024) and restarting the game fixed the issue.
Doesn't load any Textures
by David Goering on Friday August 1st 2008, 8:34
Hey ok first things first my hardware and OS setup:
I am running Wine 1.1.2 with Ubuntu 8.04
I am running it on a Dell Inspiron 6400 Laptop with
-Intel Mobile 945GM Express integrated Graphics Controller
-1,73 Dual core
Ok I had to fool arround a little (setting EnableMusic to 0 and deactivating the intro videos as described in this thread) and I can get ingame now (before it would crash).
The Problem is it doesn't load any textures at all, everything is just white, the menus are white, the characters are white everything.
But other then that everything is normal... so I can play as if the game were running it just looks like snow everywhree :D
I Would really appreciate your help
here are the last 1000 lines from the wine debug I ran:
