Additional Comments

Just mainly putting this in to show that support for this game hasn't improved with Wine 1.3.13, works flawlessly after the fixes though. (Flawlessly in the stuff I've tested anyway) ------------------------------------------------------ Maciej Warnecki summarized the fixes for this game; including Marcos' fix for the font problem (Posted in other SoaSe version here). ------------------------------------------------------- Fixes for all bugs/errors I had and are now gone: 1) Problem: Installers stops with: "Runtime Error (at-1:0): Cannot Import dll:c\windows\temp\is-C4R6D.tmp\isskin.dll." error Fix: Install "mfc42" package through winetricks and retry. 2) Problem: Proper resolution/refresh rate cannot be set within the game Fix: Resolution/refresh rate needs to be set manually using a config file "user.setting" found in: /home/username/.wine/drive_c/users/username/Local Settings/Application Data/Ironclad Games/Sins of a Solar Empire/Setting/ These are the lines You are looking for: VideoRefreshRate VideoFullScreenWidth VideoFullScreenHeight edit them to be appropriate for Your screen. PS.: It may be also necessary to edit "diplomacy.user.setting" after it is created (after running Diplomacy first). Just edit it as with user.setting. Weird - there is no "entrenchment.user.setting" file. 3) Problem: Fonts are displayed incorrectly, too big, etc. Fix: 1. In the game's directory inside de "Font" folder are 3 .ttf files, you have to copy to your local font folder and in a terminal run: fc-cache -fr ~/.fonts 2. Using a terminal enter the game's Font directory and run: sed 's/SinsAgencyBold/AgencyFB-Bold/g' -i.bak *.font 4) Problem: Game intermittently crashes/hangs. Fix: Lower graphics settings. I have read (and checked it myself) that lowering the settings in Graphics menu to High or lower (no Highest) should stop these crashes/hangs. Note: "Planet detail" can still be set to 'Highest', though. This is the only exception.
