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.


  • 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 `'. Does not require registration.)
    2. xactengine3_2.dll (Found in `'. Requires registration.)
    3. XAudio2_2.dll (Found in `'. 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


  • 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


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

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".
