    HowTo / Notes

    HOWTO

    Download this game and execute downloaded *.exe file by Wine normally. Then you can play this game basically.

    In addition...

    For displaying russian characters

    • Execute Wine with russian locale (e.c. exec "LANG=ru_RU.UTF-8 wine *.exe").
    • Windows font "lucon.ttf" is the most suitable, I think. Copy it or other fonts to "$HOME/.wine/drive_c/windows/Fonts".

    For playing MIDI BGM

    You need DLL Overrides and a bit more.

    • Download "DirectX 9.0c Redistributable" from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/.
    • Extract downloaded *.exe. "cabextract" is useful for this.
    • Extract DirectX.cab in extracted *.exe.
    • Copy dmband.dll, dmime.dll, dmloader.dll, dmstyle.dll, dmsynth.dll and dmusic.dll to "$HOME/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32".
    • Execute winecfg and override above 6 DLLs.
    • Copy gm16.dls to "$HOME/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32/drivers" and rename it to "gm.dls".

    For stabilization

    I got below repeated warnings and was not able to play this game after getting them.

    fixme:d3d:stretch_rect_fbo >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> GL_INVALID_FRAMEBUFFER_OPERATION (0x506) from glBlitFramebuffer() @ device.c / 6434

    Add a registry below. I have been able to play the game with this registry.

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct3D]
    "OffScreenRenderingMode"="pbuffer"

    For example, do...

    • Save above 2 lines to "some.reg".
    • Execute regedit with Wine (e.c. exec "wine regedit some.reg").
    .
    NOTE: after version 1.1.33
    For playing MIDI BGM, built-in DLLs cannot be used.

    Wine has 6 DLLs (dmband.dll, dmime.dll, dmloader.dll, dmstyle.dll, dmsynth.dll and dmusic.dll) on "$HOME/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32" by default. But we need DLL Overrides written in the above HOWTO. We have to replace built-in DLLs with Windows native ones.
    Problem: Inputting rusian characters by scim-ru-yawerty on wine-1.1.39
    Wine 1.1.39 cannot handle input russian chars by scim-ru-yawerty correctly. Inputting "wineП" but wine 1.1.39 shows invalid orderd chars as "wiПne". Wine 1.1.38 can do that correctly.
    This problem is fixed on wine 1.1.40.
