What works

Everything works :

  • sound / videos
  • save games (saving in space too)
  • ­trading
  • station building
  • custom mods
  • video modes higher than 1024x768 (I play in 1920x1080)

On Ubuntu x86_64, I ran into issues with gStreamer ia32 libs when using a 32 bits only wine. I used a manually built shared WoW64 setup. The prebuild wine 64 packages from PlayOnLinux also work great.

Installation :

With a recent winetricks, install d3dx9 & devenum. The environment variables $WINE and $WINEPREFIX must be set properly before running winetricks. In a shared WoW64 setup, $WINE must point to the 32bits wine executable (i.e. /usr/local/bin/wine, not wine64).

wineboot -i # initialize an empty wine prefix
winetricks d3dx9 devenum

install the game and the 1.0 to 2.5 patch (the patch will install wmp9):

wine64 /media/cdrom/setup.exe
wine64 ~/Downloads/X3Update1.0_to_2.5.exe

Install wmp10. When prompted about installing the Codec package for the 7+ Player, click Yes. After installing, you need to kill wine since wmplayer.exe does not quit.

winetricks wmp10
wineserver -k

Finally, install amstream and quartz (for sound/video playback):

winetricks amstream quartz

To launch the game, you need to run it from the installation folder:

cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files\ \(x86\)/DeepSilver/X3\ Reunion
wine64 X3.EXE

Before launching the game, in the graphics settings, select "Use Alternative Video Playback". If not, the game will crash during startup.


What does not

Sound will not work if the first intro video is skipped by pressing escape. The game intro is actually composed of 3 parts: a first video, a quote from some famous person, and a second video. When the second video starts you can hit escape to skip it.

Additional Comments

It may be required to install libmpeg123-0 If changing wine versions, quartz must be reinstalled: wionetricks --force quartz
