What works

Westwood Logo loads at startup. game then crashes

What does not

Main menu for Game fails to load, game crashes after initial westwood logo. Game would not install in wine, had to install using cedega. Actual testing was done in winehq version 0.9.6. Game starts running with This output:

err:xrandr:X11DRV_XRandR_SetCurrentMode Resolution change not successful -- perhaps display has changed? err:xrandr:X11DRV_XRandR_SetCurrentMode Resolution change not successful -- perhaps display has changed? err:ddraw:set_render_state Unhandled dwRenderStateType D3DRENDERSTATE_LINEPATTERN (0000000a) value : 00000000 ! err:ddraw:set_render_state Unhandled dwRenderStateType D3DRENDERSTATE_MONOENABLE (0000000b) value : 00000000 ! err:ddraw:set_render_state Unhandled dwRenderStateType D3DRENDERSTATE_ROP2 (0000000c) value : 0000000d ! err:ddraw:set_render_state Unhandled dwRenderStateType D3DRENDERSTATE_PLANEMASK (0000000d) value : ffffffff !

(many ddraw err lines...)

Game then finishes playing the logo and crashes with THIS output:

HowTo / Notes


How to run the game
You need to run the game with the -C command line switch, like 'wine emperor.exe -C'.

Problems installing from CD?
Ok. This is howto for people who can't install Emperor directly form CD.

1) First of all visit website and download Install patch for Emperor.

2) Coppy your Setup folder from the cd. Replace the Setup.exe with exe from the patch.

3) Run Setup.exe through terminal. It should be displaying: enter the cd to the drive.

4) Don't close message from your install. Run another terminal and enter wincfg. When you are in it, click on "Drives" button and create drive with D letter, set it as CD-ROM. Set path to this drive as /media/Emperor1/ (or whatever path you have to your CD-ROM). And apply changes. Don't close winecfg!

5) Switch to the installation and click ok on the "Insert cd" message. It should disappear and installation should began.

6) When you are going to play, enter the Emperor's folder and replace Emperor.exe with the same exe from patch.

Have fun ;]
