Selected Test Results

What works

  • Installation.
  • Playing the game (after fixes).
  • Sounds.
  • Music.
  • Saving/loading game.

What does not

  • Playing the game: The game crashes due to 2 problems:
    1. D3DXCreateTeapot (Bug #36884).
    2. XAudio (Bug #39304).
  • Running the game in Wine's full-screen mode causes the game window to get minimized when the workspace in the window manager, is changed. (See bug #37937). However, there are no problems when the window is restored/activated.

Workarounds

  • To get rid of the D3DXCreateTeapot problem, `d3dx9_39.dll' needs to be dropped in the game directory.
  • To get rid of the the XAudio problem, the following libraries need to be dropped in the game directory:
    1. X3DAudio1_4.dll (Found in `JUN2008_X3DAudio_x86.cab'. Does not require registration.)
    2. xactengine3_2.dll (Found in `Aug2008_XACT_x86.cab'. Requires registration.)
    3. XAudio2_2.dll (Found in `Aug2008_XAudio_x86.cab'. Requires registration.)
  • To prevent the game window from getting auto-minimized, the game must be run in Wine's virtual-desktop mode.

What was not tested

  • Everything else.

Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU: Intel
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

  • I prevented the installation of the bundled DirectX.This way, I kept my Wine-prefix clean.

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO

In order to get sound working, you need to add a few dlls to wine and register them with regsvr32.

xactengine2_1.dll
xactengine2_2.dll
xactengine2_3.dll
xactengine2_4.dll
xactengine2_5.dll
xactengine2_6.dll
xactengine2_7.dll
xactengine2_8.dll
xactengine2_9.dll
xactengine2_10.dll
xactengine3_0.dll
xactengine3_1.dll
xaudio2_0.dll
xaudio2_1.dll
Additionally you have to copy msvcrt71.dll and add it as msvrcx.dll to system32 folder, to make regsvr32 work properly
You can find the dlls and a script that copies and registers the dlls to the right place here.
In winecfg you must choose OSS in Audio settings and remove the tick from "driver emulation".
