Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War: Winter Assault - Released 2005 - The first expansion pack for DoW
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)
Game works okay, but generates an error when you exit the
application. This in turn requests that you forward your details as a
bug report. I think this is produced because of WINE moaning about not
being able to support DirectX 9 (could be wrong though).
I played on lowest detail settings and played a 1v1 Skirmish on Eden, Eldar vs Eldar.
What does not
Sound is very choppy and unusable.
Attempting to connect online failed to validate the CD key (probably
because that data is in the registries on the Windows install). I'll
import it and try again.
What was not tested
Campaign, multiplayer and mods other than the Winter Assault expansion (didn't even try the original game - what no IG?).
Anything other than the lowest graphics detail.
I copied a Windows install straight into the Program Files directory. The WINE config was set to Windows 98 and the sound ALSA and OSS acceleration were set to Emulation mode.
I found in XP mode the loading screens did not display properly.
There are some reports that DoW crashes in some situations when using specific version of ATI's fglrx driver.
It seems to be clear that fglrx version 9.3 and 10.12 are affected, while 10.10 seems to work fine.
Crashes occur in (at least) these situations:
DoW and WA: When a scout dies.
Building a Tau Commander.
There are several possbile work arounds:
Use another driver (10.10 seems to work) or try your luck with the free radeon driver
Disable glsl in wine's registry:
- Go to the console
- enter the following command: wine regedit
- The registry editor will open
- Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER
- Go to Software
- Go to Wine
- Go to Direct3D or create it, if it does not exist: right click "Wine" and
create a new key named Direct3D
- Mark the new Folder(Key) Direct 3D, add a new "String Value" (Zeichenfolge
for german users) named UseGLSL
- DoubleClick UseGLSL and enter "disabled" at the content-field
Thanks to jost for the detailed information.
