Additional Comments

Be noted that King of Dragon Pass is a very bug-riddled game, and crashes often (even on Windows). In short KoDP is worth trying.

HowTo / Notes

Legacy test comment
(This was moved out of the app's description.)

King of Dragon Pass is set in Glorantha (the world of the games HeroQuest, Hero Wars and RuneQuest). It blends interactive stories and resource management into an epic saga of conflict, magic, and community. This is quite unique game and should appeal anyone interested in a fantasy world with very rich mythology. Works well with wine 20031118, even music and sound works. Install by copying everything from CD to some directory (for some reason installer does not work) and launch game with wine KoDP.exe. Some problems with fonts, be sure to reduce the font size - otherwise only part of the texts might be visible. Also, rebember to mount the CD in your CD-ROM drive to play. Have not tried 1.7 patch yet.

HOWTO: Script to scale using Xephyr and VNC

# scale playonlinux --run "King of Dragon Pass"
# You can change various options here, or pass them in as environment
# variables.

# Log files. If you want to actually record logs (e.g. for debugging purposes),
# replace them here.
