HowTo / Notes

Howto
With Wine Version 1.3.29 and higher winetricks are not needed any longer to get the sound working. Just set Wine Windows version to "Windows 7"

Before install get following winetricks:

* To get sound flawlessly working: directmusic dsound
* Working graphics (except turret and alien textures): d3dx9

For a wine gaming-pc setup read this guide (you can skip the praphics part if you dont own a nvidia card:

For wine sound setup read this guide:

1. Install Steam (use AppDB Steam Guide)
2. get yourself a copy of Defense Grid
3. Install the game via Steam
4. winecfg: Set Windows version to "7" and Audio to "emulation"
5. Enjoy!
Starting problems on older wine versions/ wine 1.2 stable

To get the game to load you need to edit the ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Steam/steamapps/common/defensegridtheawakenine/config.ini

Change "Quality 2" to "Quality 0" or "Quality 1" and the game will load.


With wine version 1.3.20 and later this shouldn't be necessary anymore.
Textures and shaders
Delete these shaders:

Shaders/Common/LastStandLowEndSkinnedLightingShader-V.hlsl
Shaders/Common/LastStandMidEndSkinnedLightingShader-V.hlsl
Shaders/Common/LastStandSkinnedLightingShader-V.hlsl

And you will have at least black mobs and towers.
