Played only the first level with this version of Wine but have played through all levels with a previous version of Wine and had no issues or crashes.
What does not
Only issues I have noticed are most transparent graphical effects can change colour depending on certain actions or moving the view around. Also Walls and Tiles do not highlight when selected.
To get LRR to work for me these are the steps required.
First you need to run winecfg and change the prefix Windows version to Windows XP. Click "Apply" and close winecfg.
Now install winetricks if you don't have it installed already, Then install amstream, quartz, devenum and d3drm using winetricks by running this command:
winetricks amstream quartz devenum d3drm
Once it has finished, now you need to install icodecs again using winetricks, The Ligos Indeo codecs are needed for the in game videos to play. So run this command to download and start the installer:
Once you get to the window to select what type of installation you want, Select the "Custom" installation option and then untick "Indeo Video 5 DirectShow Filter" and "Indeo Video 5 Web Browser Plugin". Otherwise the installer will fail. Carry on with the installation and it should finish.
Now on to installing LEGO Rock Raiders itself. First put your LRR CD into your optical drive or mount the .iso file, Wine should auto detect the mounted CD/.iso and list it under the "Drives" tab of winecfg. Once you have checked that open a terminal in your install CD and run this command to run the installer with Wine:
Now go through the installation process until it asks to install DirectX Media, click yes, then when it asks to install DirectX 6, click no.
Once the installer has finished you should be able to run LRR through the shortcuts that are created.
What was not tested
I have not tested any level after the first level with this version of Wine however I have played through all levels with a previous version of Wine and did not encounter any issues or crashes.
