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 works

Installation (typical).

Patching.

Playing.

AI.

Video playback (a slight bit slow, however).

Graphics settings on all levels.


What does not

Installation is buggy.

"Typical" installation works perfect. No problems.

"Custom" installation works until prompted to select a language pack.

It is impossible to get past this stage of the installation, because the program continues asking the user to select a language pack, regardless of whether one is selected or not.

The framerate is slow on Ultra High settings, compared to the Windows equivalent.

Most noted: Graphics level changes cause the framerate decrease. Resolution seems to have minimal impact on the framerate. This could point to a shader translation problem.


What was not tested
Multiplayer, both internet play network play.


Additional Comments

Wonderful work, WINE team!  And happy new year!

This has to be one of the easiest new games to play through WINE now.  It was so painlessly simple to set up and play.  Keep it up!

HOWTO


Cursor and Multiplayer Support

You need to use a special version of wine to get proper in-game cursors and network support.

You can acquire this by either patching and compiling wine yourself, or using a provided package.

Goto http://www.compholio.com/wine-kane/ to obtain these  (DEBS and RPMS).

 

Internet play

You have to make sure that your "$HOME/.wine/drive_c/users/profiles/yourhomefolder/Application Data/C&C 3/Profiles/your_gameaccount/Options.ini" 'GameSpyIPAddress' fieldagrees with your online ip (for example GameSpyIPAddress = 84.171.46.121) and make sure that file is read-only.

Admin notes:  Do NOT submit test results for patched versions of Wine.  This is not a true representation of what Wine can achieve.

Do NOT submit test results for PlayOnLinux or anything else that is not Wine.

Do NOT submit test results where Multiplayer has not been tested.  Full tests are need to correctly rate an application.

Tests that do not comply will be deleted without warning.


 
Troubleshooting

Installation


The installer says installation was aborted, even before starting to install files
If you are installing from a CD/DVD, try copying the game disc to your home directory and run it from there.

I chose custom installation and it tells me to select a language pack, even though I have
Use the standard installation mode.

Starting the game

It hangs at the splash screen
Try running winecfg and disable all audio drivers.  Of course that is not an acceptable solution, but it will help us to determine where the problem lies.


In-game issues


Some effect settings result in corruption or improperly displayed rendering
Try setting the VFX or Shader quality to a lower setting.  Your graphics driver and/or wine may have bugs which result in visual defects at present.

The cursor animation does not play
Apply the relevant patches to wine or use a version with the functionality as described in the howto.
