Old test results
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)
- Just about everything(No .dll overrides used -
default configuration). Winetools is not necessary.
What does not
- Copy protection - Securom check failed, no-cd
version of executable runs fine. - Sound - Locomotion's music

coping finishs. Be patient.

21. I recommend you
update your Locomotion's version to v1.76. Download it(google will
show you lots of mirrors) and extract it somewhere. Right-click the
executable archive and left-click WINE.
22. The following
screen will show up. Click in the “OK” button.
23. Click in the “OK”
24. WINE hasn't
implemented securom(It's an anti-copy protection method). This means
you will have to download a "NO-CD" file to be able to
play. Gamecopyworld has that file. Please remember that you may only
use that file if own the game (a.k.a. bought it in stores).
25. After decompressing
that "No-CD" file, overwrite the original LOCO.exe with the
one you just acquired in the directory
programas/Atari/Locomotion" as in the example below. Replace
"gelson" in the address I gave you with your username in
your Linux computer. If LOCO.exe was not overwritten then you must
delete it(use the no-cd file in its place).
26. All set up. Click
in the created icon to play.
You must enable the emulated desktop in Wine Configuration! Otherwise the game will not run!
