HowTo / Notes

Copy Protection
Unlike other editions of the Blitzkrieg series, Blitzkrieg Anthology doesn't appear to have StarForce copy protection — No-CD patches are currently required for other editions to run under Wine.

I get black screen after starting any campaign.

Crashes on opening animation

It doesn't work for me - tested with wine-1.0.0 and 1.1.4. It crashes when playing CDV logo animation. I get the following errors:

fixme:win:EnumDisplayDevicesW ((null),0,0x32f098,0x00000000), stub!

wine: Unhandled page fault on read access to 0x0000002a at address 0x2a (thread 001d), starting debugger..

Any ideas?

Happens for me too(though with Talvisota: Icy hell). I were able to get to the menu once, but weren’t able to get again even when deleting whole .wine.

With wine-1.1.31 the game doesn't crash on opening movie, but when selecting 'Allies campaign'.

The game works when playing 'Germans campaign' - an intro movie is played and the game starts. However, it runs too fast and this makes it not playable.
