HowTo / Notes

WARNING

 Securom sollution by kowaltsky:

Sollution by Alan Luth doesnt works for me, I have got another one:

- make sure, than Battlefield Bad Company 2 is in your DVD-rom!

1) open Terminal and use this command:  sudo mkdir /mnt/cdrom

2) Open Wine settings (applications - wine)

3) Switch to tab witch discs

4) add drive D: and add mount point:  /mnt/cdrom

5) now last step, open Terminal and use this command:

sudo mount -o ro,loop,uid=$UID,unhide /dev/sr0 /mnt/cdrom
  ln -s /dev/sr0 ~/.wine/dosdevices/d::
  winemine &
  ln -s /mnt/cdrom ~/.wine/dosdevices/d:


If that doesnt work, try sollution by Alan Luth.


Securom sollution by Alan Luth:

If you get Securom errors that the game cannot find the DVD, see:

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=980629

 

short answer, try mounting with -o uid=$UID,unhide.

Also make sure you have symlinks to both the device and the mount point in ~/.wine/dosdevices

I have to avoid wineboot deleting my d: symlink before running this game. The whole recipe looks like

  sudo mount -o ro,loop,uid=1002,unhide /dev/sr0 /mnt/cdrom
  ln -s /dev/sr0 ~/.wine/dosdevices/d::
  winemine &
  ln -s /mnt/cdrom ~/.wine/dosdevices/d:
DirectX Version

For this game, DirectX must be manually set to version 9 (default is 10).

To do this, do the following:

cd ~/.wine/drive_c/users/[username]/My Documents/BFBC2

Edit settings.ini and set the value of DxVersion from Auto to 9

Possible Sound Problem Fix

This how-to extracted from a May 10th, 2012 comment by AJSB. This has not yet been tested by the current maintainer (Scott Weldon).

To fix sound problems, edit the file "~/BFBC2/settings.ini" Find the following line:

SpeakerCount=0

and change it to, e.g.:

SpeakerCount=2
