Everything I tested (single player skirmish)
What does not
In order to get audio working I had to change hardware acceleration to emulated.
What was not tested
Do not start the installer using Un*x paths (e.g. wine /media/cdrom0/Setup.exe). These won't work because of bug 7663.
Do not use Setup.exe, since it may produce segfault due to bug 7785. Neither use Autoplay.exe, since it just relies on Setup.exe.
For now, the only right way to start the installer is:
wine 'd:\_dxinst.exe' ' -wd d:'
Again, when starting the game make sure the path is in win32 form. Additionally, if you have a multi-core CPU, use schedtool to work
around thread unsafety issues. The complete command would be:
schedtool -a 0x1 -e wine 'c:\Program Files\Liquid Entertainment\War of the Ring(tm)\Rings.exe'
