Dark Forces II Jedi Knight, Can't Play Multiplayer
by Matthew Guertin on Monday May 9th 2016, 15:37
Hey,

So, I followed instructions and opened JK using the -windowgui command in the terminal, but the join/host connection boxes were still empty. When I rolled the cursor over those boxes, there were sounds of items being encountered; but when I clicked on them repeatedly, I got a "Cannot connect to the network" error message. I also followed instructions and set all the required .dll files as native, and that didn't do anything, either. Anyone know how to fix this? (I use Lubuntu, if that matters.)

Seems like it could be a GUI error not loading the text for the different network options or that the network options themselves are not loading. Have you tried running JK without the -windowgui option, and have you tried running winetricks for directplay and directx9?
