HowTo / Notes

latest findings...
After some research I found the following: The Game is implemeted in Delphi(?) and uses truevision3d (.com) game engine. According to it should work fine on wine.. However, the game will crash on start up if DirectX is not installed.

Battle Of Endor & Battle Of Yavin (Bruno R Marcos)

I got this working.

I took the suggestion at the end of the test article to install VB6 runtime using winetricks. Thats alone did not work, but I also installed the DirectX9 runtime.

The game works flawlessly. I can also confirm that Battle Of Yavin also works too


PS I'm on Ubuntu 8.10 with latest wine as of 03/01/09

Thats the latest stable wine 1.0.1-0ubuntu that I'm on

Not the Development one, but it looks like you have figured that out.


VB6 dependency?
by Carlton Hobbs on Wednesday December 17th 2008, 13:46
Since this game is writen using Visual Basic 6, I'm thinking that if I install the VB6 library through Winetricks, it may work. I'll hopefully try soon unless someone else does so and reports back first.

I installed VB6 using winetricks, it did not work.... BUT I also installed directX9 runtime using winetricks.....and (Drum roll please)... it worked fine.

Oh Battle of Yavin works too 8-)
