HowTo / Notes

NOTE: Font colours work for WINE > 1.4.1
WINE 1.4.1 seems to have resolved the non-black font colour issue that rendered many in-game displays unreadable. Now they display the correct colours like they do under Windows.
HOWTO 1. Videos
To get the videos in BioSys running copy the msvidc32.dll from a generic Windows installation ("C:/windows/system32/msvidc32.dll" for me) to the respective folder in your wine directory tree ("$HOME/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32/" for me). Then set in the wineconfig -> Library menu msvidc32 to "Native (Windows)" only.
Tested with msvidc32.dll file Version 5.1.2600.0 (size 25 kB) on Ubuntu 10.10 and Debian 6.0.2.1 and 7.0 .
HOWTO 2. Path Issue
To start BioSys.exe from the command line without problems you have to make the BioSys directory your present working directory by typing cd /path/to/BioSYS ("cd '$HOME/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Jumpstart Solutions/Biosys'" for me) before running BioSys.exe with "wine BioSys.exe".
Tested in Ubuntu 10.10 and Debian 6.0.2.1 and 7.0 .
