Selected Test Results

What works

Starting the application, initial menus, in game tutorial, starting campaign

What does not

Cannot (yet) use higher screen resolution (1600) stick to 1048.


Installer does not terminate normally after completion(32 bit issue?)?

Video resolution does not change back on quit, starting video resolution changes flicker


* Killing the installer manually.

* Using 1048 resolution, loading map crashed otherwise (workaround possible?)

* Use 32 Bit Bottle! Otherwise, creating heroes etc. (everything except demo) does not work:

WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-32 winecfg;<pre>
WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-32/ wine Battlecry\ II.exe

What was not tested

Multiplayer, completing missions, campaign (worked before, would change the report later if issues occur).

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Intel
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

See way earlier reports for Multiplayer stuff etc.

HowTo / Notes

When you start the game, the screen may be black. Switch to another program (Alt + Tab) and then back to the game, and it should appear.

Elements such as taskbars designed to cover other applications are not hidden when Warlords Battlecry II is run in full-screen. This can be fixed by not allowing the window manager to control Wine applications (can be changed in winecfg), or by changing the taskbar's options so that windows are allowed to cover it.

To get multiplayer working, place the DLLs in this archive in Wine's windows/system32 directory. Then, start winecfg and add dll overrides (native, builtin) for the following DLLs: dplayx, dpnet, dpnhpast and dpwsockx.
NOTE: the game freezes when exiting a multiplayer game.
