Additional Comments

This game works, but is a little bit tricky to get working. First, you need to have a CD for the game (or burn one from an ISO). Otherwise the original game won't find the CD, and the no-CD cracks I tested didn't work under Wine (crash when trying to run a game). Then, you need to use the program at . You don't need to use the crappy GUI provided, you just need to run wine from the wine4wa/bin/wine directory. You also need to run the game in a virtual desktop with winecfg, otherwise you may have some problems with getting the keyboard or mouse input recognised. Then, you need to fiddle around a bit to make the sound work. Don't hesitate to pass "/nointro" as a command line parameter to WA.exe, as this skips the annoying intro and can help the sound to work. Despite the several hours it took for me to get this working, I am giving a Gold rating anyway, because I managed to make it work flawlessly.

HowTo / Notes

  • Use a recent Wine, 1.1.39 works fine
  • Apply this hack* (made for 1.1.39) and compile Wine from source
  • Update WA to to the latest beta version (tested with
  • Configure Wine to be in desktop mode with the desired resolution you want to play in (optional but recommended)
  • Remember to use GDI as the DirectDrawRenderer rather than OpenGL, otherwise you'll get the same black screen bug even with the patch:


Some known problems:

  • When failing a mission or completing a ranked deathmatch game and returning to the menu you can't click on anything and hitting ESC will get you back to the main menu but the game will instantly crash.
  • If you run WA in real fullscreen with no wine desktop you need to ALT-TAB in each menu to get a focus.
