Old test results
The test results for this version are very old, and as such they may not represent the current state of Wine. Please consider submitting a new test report.
Selected Test Results (selected in 'Test Results' table below)

What works

Can start new games. Sound works (but see below). Can save games.

Can restore saved game from launch menu.

­


What does not

Wine adds scrollbars on edges, and a menubar. In Compiz window manager, an "mTropolis Windows Player - mPlayer" titlebar is also displayed. The game's copy protection does not work on a loop-mounted ISO image -- it requires the CD-ROM to be physically present and configured in Wine.

Game crashes (page fault) if a saved game is loaded from mid-game.­

­


What was not tested

Long-term gameplay. (Sorry, playing through to the end-game is very challenging!)­

Additional Comments

Although ALSA correctly shares my sound card via the hardware mixer in other applications, it does not work in Wine. Needed to manually configure ALSA dmix through .asoundrc, then sound works fine.

My .asoundrc

Here's the .asoundrc file I'm using which allows Win­e to correctly produce sound on ALSA. ­This will, obviously, be different on your sound hardware. You may want to refer to the ALSA Wiki if you need information about this.­

HOWTO get Wine to deal with an ISO image.

winecfg isn't quite smart enough to configure an ISO image of a CD-ROM correctly. It attempts to use the block device the .iso is located on, instead of the .iso directly. However, wine can be coaxed accessing the virtual "hardware" directly, which should work with most forms of copy protection.

Check which drives are currently configured with wine:

$ cd ~/.wine/dosdevices
$ ls -l
total 0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 lade lade 10 2010-05-28 22:36 c: -> ../drive_c
lrwxrwxrwx 1 lade lade 13 2010-06-05 17:34 d: -> /home/lade/kodp.iso
lrwxrwxrwx 1 lade lade  8 2010-06-05 17:34 d:: -> /dev/sda

Remove any old links you don't want.

$ rm "d:" "d::"

Mount your iso image.

$ mkdir /media/iso
$ mount -t iso9660 -o loop ~/kodp.iso /media/iso

Create a symlink for file-level access in Wine.

$ ln -s /media/iso "d:"

And here's the magic... create the symlink for device access by pointing directly to the iso image.

$ ln -s ~/kodp.iso "d::"

If you look at this drive in winecfg now, it should correctly detect the volume name and serial number of your CD image.

This should allow you to run King of Dragon Pass (or any other copy-protected application) on a netbook or other device without the original CD-ROM present.

cannot launch the game...

Hi,

I can't launch the game (using wine 1.1.38), I've got the message :
The file was built for an incompatible platform and connot be opend with this version of the application


And launching in a shell :
/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/A Sharp/King of Dragon Pass$ wine KoDP.exe
fixme:ntdll:server_ioctl_file Unsupported ioctl 24000 (device=2 access=1 func=0 method=0)

I have tryied to upgrade the game to version 1.7 and result is the same !

How can I make the game run ?

Thanks
