What works

  • All graphics is properly shown, without any glitches.
  • The texts are also all visible.

What does not

  • The game still freezes (with bg music playing and dialog button "trying" to be responsive) when calling for back-up when it's not available.
  • Still lags in the strategic view, when in "mission mode".
  • The game freezes at the mission start screen (strategy), when an announcement is made by operator, instead of common mission start routine (Mission 9 and Mission 6 or 7, in particular).


What was not tested

  • In-game video clips.
  • Certain crashes or freezes when dialog boxes pop-up.

HowTo / Notes

  • To play the opening video, you must have Indeo 4.1 codec installed.
    • Run "regedit" and locate the following registry key (create "drivers32" if it's missing): HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Drivers32
    • add a String key named "vidc.iv41", for its value input "ir41_32.dll"
    • obtain "ir41_32.dll" file (Indeo codec) and copy it into "windows/system32" folder in your wine installation.
  • In-game small video clips require MS RLE video codec (msrle32.dll). You can register it the same way as described above, just name the new String key "vidc.mrle" and enter "msrle32.dll" for its value. However, this doesn't help much... and you will have to go with blank rectangles for now. Or switch off the in-game video clips in the game settings menu.
  • The game is prone to crashes when run under "non-native" locales. Make sure you change your locale to "ja_JP.UTF-8" before running wine. A one-liner "LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8 wine pd4.exe" works fine for me.
About the issues
The game seems to have issues with a "true" full-screen in wine, so it should be run with "Virtual Desktop" wine option enabled.
