First try :
- launch game
- new game
After a few fixes :
What does not
At first :
After a few fixes :
Nothing, I was able to play for a long time.
Sound using ALSA driver in WineCFG, yet I suppose the problem is peculiar to my computer. (other games, that worked perfectly on other computers with wine, cause sound crashes on this one).
The result is that I use OSS instead. There is a trick to have multiple OSS playing at same time and so get almost the same result as ALSA.
What was not tested
Nothing I can think of.
This is the copy/paste from test on Ubuntu 9.04 : "I put a Bronze because it DOES need fixing in order to get everything to work. What did I do to get the game to work properly ? 1. installed the game from the DvD. 2. Patched to 2.5 and I added the extra bonus content. (No more DRM) 3. Downloaded an amstream.dll file from the net (type "download amstream.dll" in google and you'll get it easily) 3. bis. Put this "amstream.dll" in "C:\windows\system32\" (the wine one (/home/regis/.wine/dosdevices/c:/windows/system32) 3. Ter. Configured Wine to override Wine Dll and use "amstream.dll" in native. 4. Installed "WINETRICKS" according to the how-to from forum-ubuntu.org : http://doc.ubuntu-fr.org/wine_trucs_et_astuces#winetricks 5. Then I installed DirectX 9 via Winetricks (Command : winetricks directx9) Then I launched X3 reunion and for the first time I was able to watch the intro, listen to the music and hear the stations' announcements. AND I WAS ABLE TO TRADE !!!! Yes ! unbelievable :D Wine is configured to emulate WinXP, with ALSA sound, and use a virtual desktop." EDIT : The sound is now runing with OSS driver.
