HowTo / Notes

HOWTO
  •  Use of dll overrides "devenum.dll" and "dxdiagn.dll" may be necessary for the game to run.
  •  Requires using winetricks to install directx9 and vcrun2005.
  •  The following registry key changes are recommended (Use the command "wine regedit" and then add them as strings to the appropriate directory):

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct3D]
OffscreenRenderingMode = fbo
UseGLSL = enabled
VideoMemorySize = 256

You may also put in whatever amount of memory your video card uses instead of 256.

  • To get the autoupdater to run, right click anywhere on the autoupdate window (except the status text part), and then click "dedicated internet connection". It should now work.
  • If you are unable to change resolution while using fullscreen mode, emulating a virtual desktop may be useful for getting the game to allow other resolutions.
