HowTo / Notes


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 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 = 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.



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.

Multiplayer "Out of Sync"
by Hans Gaiser on Saturday March 28th 2015, 6:09
I managed to get everything seemingly to work on OSX with wine 1.7, even network games. However a random amount of time (usually somewhere after 10 minutes), the game gives a network out of sync error and forces you to quite. No clue why this happens..
