What works

Before installation, use Winetricks to install VCRUN2005. If not it will not run, as it is expecting MSVCR80.DLL. It may expect other .DLL's in the Windows directory, but I could not find out, so its best to just install that VC run file. The Game

What does not

Installation may error out. It did on mine and the previous installation. Says something about Ending Prematurely. You can just exit out of that Dialog, and quit the install. It HAS installed the files. The Game CD must be left in the drive to play the game.

Workarounds

What was not tested

All of the game, I just started playing it.

Additional Comments

I have told you to install vcrun2005 via WineTricks, which installs some Microsoft C++ dll files. Also, in wine set the resolution for 1024x768 or whatever is below your normal resolution. If you try running it at full screen, you may not be able to exit out when it errors out. Also, at least on mine, fullscreen was not centered and the edges where offscreen.

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO
  • Before Installation, make sure WineTricks is installed, if not use the command wget http://www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks, to install. Change the permissions on the file, chmod +x winetricks
  • Use WineTricks to install VCRUN2005 which will install some C++ dll's under the Windows directory.
  • Use WineTricks to install MSI2 (MS Installer 2.0)
  • The open WineCFG, go to Libraries==>MSI, and change it to read BuiltIn then Native.
  • Install Everlight Steps below if it errors out
  • a. Quit Error Dialog box
  • b. Copy over the [cdrom drive]:/Install/Program Files/JoWood" (overwrite)
  • c. Set properties on [~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/JoWood] and every file underneath to Read/Write. (file copied from CDROM are usually read only)

**NOTES**

Now comes the real fun part.

Save game often

Run the game, using the Launcher on the desktop, or if you would like to help to debug it, Go to "C:\Program Files\JoWood\Everlight" and run this command. winedebug=+relay wine "C:\Program Files\JoWood\Everlight\everlight.exe" &> relmsg

The output of any errors will be printed out to a file called "relmsg" for later viewing.
  • a. The program WILL error out eventually, which is why you should save the game often.
  • b. Close the error box (if you can)
b.1. If you can't close the error box, force Wine to close using this command.
b.2. "ps aux | grep wine" from another terminal
b.3. You might get more than one line. If you only get 1 (reading grep wine), then Wine has closed.
  • b.4. If you get more the one line it should show up like this:
  • [your login] 14873 0.0 0.0 5164 832 pts/0 R+ 15:27 0:00 wineserver
  • [your login] 14876 0.0 0.0 5164 832 pts/0 R+ 15:27 0:00 grep wine
 b.5. Use the command "kill -9 [pid number]" thats the number right after your login name.

If you would like to post any error msgs do so, but also post 10 lines above any lines in relmsg above Messagebox line.
