HowTo / Notes

HOWTO
  1. Install the game:
    • Cancel DirectX Installer
    • Install MSVC Redistributable
  2. Install MS DirectX 9 ("directx9") with winetricks
  3. Install MS .NET Framework 2.0 ("dotnet20") with winetricks
  4. Set (string) HKCU/Software/Wine/Direct3D/Vid­eoMemorySize to the size of your video card's memory (e.g. "512") via "wine regedit"
  5. Set (string) HKCU/Software/Wine/DirectSound/MaxShadowSize to "0" via "wine regedit"
  6. Make sure the Windows version is set to Windows XP via "winecfg" (seems to work best)
  7. Play the game
Note
Some users are reporting you may have to set some more Registry Keys in order to experience better results (e.g. borders drawn incorrectly). You may try these:

in HKCU/Software/Wine/Direct3D/
  • DirectDrawRenderer to "opengl"
  • OffscreenRenderingMode to "backbuffer"
  • OffscreenRenderingMode to "pbuffer"
  • OffscreenRenderingMode to "fbo"
  • PixelShaderMode to "enabled"
  • VideoMemorySize to the size of your video memory (e.g. "512")
in HKCU/Software/Wine/DirectSound/
  • MaxShadowSize to "0"
WARNING
The game needs hardware supporting Pix­el Shader 2 to run­!
