What works

Installation works fine

What does not

Right after starting up the Ankh-Demo an error-message comes up:

Unknown exception -

Pina:Application:Init -> Pina:Application:Init -> WinMain


What was not tested

I have done some testing before and was advised to use the GL_Renderer. Right before starting the demo I edited bin/release/plugins.cfg and changed my settings. So I didn't test the initial configuration.

HowTo / Notes

Needs an old version of Wine or changes to the configuration

­­­­Use wine-0.9.31 .. 0.9.43 to play this game with the default Direct3D9 renderer because of several regressions. These old versions should work except the item icons in the inventory may not be drawn correctly (bug #21354).

The maintainer would appreciate if you would find out whether one of these old ve­rsions works better than the others.

You can use much more recent versions of Wine (such as 1.1.34/36) if you change bin/release/plugins.cfg to use the GL renderer instead. The speech output issue (bug #21209) may still affect your machine.­
