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)
What does not
Introduction movies (note: these do not work under Win XP either!)
Cursor flickers slightly when moving
What was not tested
Instructions on how to enable multiplayer can be seen in the HOWTO below. There is a flickering of the mouse cursor which is slightly irritating, but does not affect gameplay.
Users with both the KDE4 desktop environment and nVidia graphics cards may notice a slowdown, particularly when rendering tactical battles - this is a known current limitation of KDE4/nVidia which slows down graphic rendering and is not connected to Wine
"winetricks directplay" in your Birth of the Federation prefix
as this will enable you to join multiplayer games over TCP/IP.
The following ports must be reachable on the host machine,
and may need to be port forwarded if you are behind a router:
UDP 2350, 47624
The game seems to hang when trying to "cancel" out of
multiplayer configuration screens; if this happens, you may need to kill
the game ("killall trek.exe" from the command line). Be sure to also
kill any .exe processes which are still running (using a tool such as
ksysguard) to ensure you can still use multiplayer later. If you are
running fullscreen and killing the game leaves you with the wrong screen
resolution, try issuing the following command:
xrandr -s 1280x1024
replacing "1280x1024" with your desired resolution.
The game's sound can work perfectly with ALSA, in later versions even with the default dmix (i.e. mixing sound with other apps like music players).
First, check you Wine sound settings in the winecfg configuration tool. Test your sound with some other application (like WinAmp). Some ALSA errors may show up on your console and sound will still work, so test it before trying to hunt all the errors down.
If you still don't have sound in the game, check that the option SOUNDON=ON is set in stbof.ini.
