What works

Installation through Steam

What does not

Game suffers from infamous bug 6971(  where mouse pointer is stuck in the middle of the screen

As such, it is impossible to select most of the options from the menu (selecting a save game, changing key bindings) or even some vital ingame functions (map, pda etc)

While it is possible to enter the game (by using the keyboard to select options), it is completely impossible to properly play it.


What was not tested

Multiplayer, extended playthrough

See following links for more information on this well-known pointer problem: I feel the comment by the previous tester putting this application at "platinum" is misleading

HowTo / Notes

Wine Versions and Launching the Game

Note that users running this game in older WINE versions have experienced mouse issues among other problems. It is strongly advised that you use either the latest stable version of WINE (Currently 1.4.0) or the latest development release.

Also note that to running the game must be done in the following fashion:

wine ./bin/xrEngine.exe

The game will fail to launch if you use WINE to run executable from within the bin folder.


Getting WINE ready:

Just install WINE from your distribution's package manager, be it apt-get, yum, pacman or something else. The newer the WINE version, the better.

If your distribution does not offer a newer version of WINE, simply download the latest version from winehq, or use PlayOnLinux to manage your wine versions/prefixes for you.

Winetricks is another immensely helpful tool when working with wineprefixes, if your distribution doesn't package it, you can get it here.

 Once that's out of the way, continue on to installing the game.

Installation: Steam Version

 Right now, you don't need any dll overrides, just run:

 winetricks --no-isolate steam

and after updating Steam, you can install Call of Pripyat just fine. If you're using a wineprefix other than the default "~/.wine", then you need to add your wineprefix to the command:

WINEPREFIX=~/.path/to/wineprefix winetricks --no-isolate steam

Installation: Retail/Physical Version

 Set up a fresh wineprefix and run the DVD installer. Right now, it is unknown exactly which dll overrides are needed (if any) due to lack of recent test data. If you are having trouble, use winetricks to install d3dx9 and ffdshow.

If your game is crashing on startup, disable the d3dx11 dlls. Change directory to your 'windows/system32' folder within your wine prefix and run:

mv -v d3d11.dll d3d11.dll.DISABLED
mv -v d3dx11_42.dll d3dx11_42.dll.DISABLED

Running the Game

 Launch the game (NOT from the bin folder, run command one level above).

wine ./bin/xrEngine.exe
