Selected Test Results

What works

  • Installation under an earlier version of Wine. (It looks like the Sacrifice installer is affected bug 16708. This should be fixed in 1.1.13.)

What does not

  • Installation is broken with a known bug in Wine 1.1.12 that should be fixed in 1.1.13. I installed the game using Wine 1.0.1.
  • Upon trying to launch the game under Windows XP, nothing happens.
  • Upon trying to launch the game under Windows 98, a dialog box with the title, "A debugger has been detected" and the message, "Unload the debugger and try again," pops up and must be dismissed. After dismissing it, the game does not load.


What was not tested

Nothing past launching the game could be tested.

Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

The HOWTO for running this game is out of date; presumably, it contains instructions on how to get past the debugger detection that prevents the game from launching. The file the HOWTO suggests using is no longer available, so the HOWTO information is not useful. (What would be helpful is information on what this pe.exe did so that those who want to run the game can re-create it.)

Note: This has been fixed in recent versions of wine.

Hi I have coded a small program to fix a bug in Wine which causes an error message on launch, by changing a 1 value in the header of the main program executable. To use it, open a terminal and cd to the install directory, so something like:

cd .wine/drive_c/shiny/sacrifice/
then download this program by entering:
then to fix your game executable (assuming it is called sacrifice.exe):

wine pe.exe sacrifice.exe
