Installation, gameplay, joystick, sound.
What does not
Screen resolutions above 640x480 result in a crash.
What was not tested
Other missions, only tested completing the first mission and starting the second.
Follow this procedure to get both sound and joystick working. 1. Set the Windows version to XP. The GOG installer refuses to install if the system is older than XP. Consider emulating a virtual desktop due to the extremely low resolution. 2. Use winetricks to install dsound. Otherwise you will not have audio. 3. Run the installer. Note that the installer will throw several errors near the end, but it did work. 4. Use 'Rogue Squadron.EXE' to launch the game. Launching from 'ROGUE.EXE' does not work and will say you need to reinstall from the original CD. 5. The game should launch. You should have audio and be able to play the first mission, but you will not have a working joystick. 6. Change the wine level to Windows 98. 7. Use 'ROGUE.EXE' to configure your joystick. 8. Use 'Rogue Squadron.EXE' to launch the game. You should now see a default joystick mapping, if not reload the defaults. Your joystick should now be working. 9. Remain in Windows 98 mode and your audio and joystick should both work in-game.
