Additional Comments

Picked this up for a buck at a Thrift Store.. Seemed impressive, but no game, useless.. I'm sure with some work it could be made work, maybe I can obtain a crack from "Game Copy World".. Using Wine 1.0.0, the version downloadable for Ubuntu 7.10 . Precisely: 1.0.0~winehq0~ubuntu~7.10-2 Had no idea I was using such a early version of wine, I guess I should update, so later versions of Wine might work.. BTW, I hadn't disabled the "GLSHADER" in regedit, as is suggested for running Guild Wars. So Mileage may vary. Using NVidia 8600, maxed out all graphics settings, for the selection screen it looks impressive, seems like it could work, just the game fails the minute the game starts.. In fact the game doesn't start.. But all the video, trailers, music, everything works upto that point.. Must need a minor wedge to get it working but seems nobody cares enough to do that..
