Can't get past character creation
by Chris on Sunday March 22nd 2009, 20:36
Hm, I remember that at *some* point I was able to, but I hadn't actually really played through IWD before in wine.
I gave it a try recently (wine version 1.1.17), and no matter what I do, after I create a party and click "Done", the game loads about 80%, stalls, and then crashes. No message box errors, no C++ errors (as I thought it might be, since IWD2 has similar crashes if I create a party with more than 1 character).
Console output gives me this:
err:ntdll:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection section 0x7e1c18a0 "x11drv_main.c: X11DRV_CritSection" wait timed out in thread 0026, blocked by 0009, retrying (60 sec)
wine: Critical section 7e1c18a0 wait failed at address 0x7ef8de30 (thread 0026), starting debugger...

process tid prio (all id:s are in hex)
You must be attached to a process to run this command.
No process loaded, cannot execute 'detach'
all this which it barfs out just before the game goes kaput. help!
Strange Stuttering in the Severed Hand?
by Ben Leggett on Saturday July 26th 2008, 12:46
I'm running wine-1.1.0 with IWD+HOW+TOTLM, and upon entering the interior of the Severed Hand, I get strange 1 second pauses every three or so seconds. If I leave, this stops, and I haven't had this happen in any other area so far. I've tried twiddling varios config options, but no luck. Can anyone else verify this?
Crashes after saving
by Benoit Smith on Friday March 28th 2008, 16:10
Good news - with the latest Wine version, I managed to install IWD, fully extended and patched to 1.42, and start a new game.
Bad news - the game crashes every time I save it. Even worse - "every time" includes the auto-saves caused by leaving an area - which means that right now, my "Fellowship of the Six" (well, sort of) is stuck in the starting area, the town of Easthaven !
Please did anyone come across a similar problem and find a solution/workaround for it ? Any help would be greatly appreciated !
